Thanks for your suggestion -- the Working Group discussed it, but we
concluded that the XInclude specification itself is the right place
for specifying the interaction between namespaces and inclusion, and
indeed there is a substantial section there [1] which covers this
already.

We hope you are satisfied with this resolution -- please let us know.
