I agree this can be done, and thank you for sketching a proposal. In my view 
at this point in the game, this is more a question of how much work should we 
put into this.

This seems like a lot of material to solve something which is really a 
processing model question. We really need to add a processing phase, which
is in essence what you suggest. Or we need to build this during normalization 
(which is what my own implementation does by the way), but of course this 
leads to a much bigger change.

Are you firmly against the non formal approach for this issue? If you are,
we may want to go for your proposal. If you think you can live with the non 
formal approach, I will probably prefer it so we can spend the time processing 
the many other last call issues.

For the records, I kind of agree with Michael Kay's statement that having a 
syntax for expanded names in the core would be great. That is mostly 
tangential to this thread though.
