In my opinion, something like this would only serve to extend the 
confusion between namespaces and vocabularies.  Indeed, we have 
purposely avoided doing ANYTHING with the XML default namespace because 
it can change throughout a document.  Are you suggesting that the 
collection of  'keywords' could morph magically as an XML parser moves 
through its content?
