Issue 7235 - Don't steal other's namespace

My comments:

The use of namespaces such as XPath 1.0 by WS-RA specifications seems consistent with use of other such standard namespaces such as SOAP, WSDL, and so on; meaning, the WS-RA specifications do not add to or modify the elements in the imported namespaces. Further, the imported namespaces are published standards and they are stable in time; any change that occurs to the namespace contents (elements defined in the namespace) should result in a revision to the namespace URI as governed by the namespace change policy. Hence, it is safe to refer to published standard namespace URIs. Consequently, I do not see a good reason to introduce a surrogate namespace URI for an existing standard namespace URI.
