Luc,

I am happy with the other changes, but I still have question on the namespace issue. See below

first of all, exclunding -> excluding

But just to be clear about the intention. The way I understand the current sentence:

[[[
The scope of a namespace declaration directly occurring in a document is the document itself, exclunding the bundles it may contain
]]]

is that, in case of 

document
  prefix a <http:...>
  ...
  bundle abcde
    ... a:something ...
  endBundle
endDocument

the usage of 'a:something' is illegal. I am a bit surprised by this definition; usually (eg, in the trig-in-preparation) the prefix declarations given on the top are valid for the whole document, but you may have had good reasons for this restrictions that was discussed before I joined the group. Ie, I will not object to that, but just wanted to be sure that we do have the same understanding.

Ivan
