It really comes down to a (minor) misunderstanding of how M12N and the 
M12N DTD implementation works.  You can indeed use any namespaces you 
want as long as you declare them in the internal subset.  I attach a 
document that I hacked up from something Ben sent me earlier today as an 
example - works fine in the validator.
