/ "John Boyer" <JBoyer@PureEdge.com> was heard to say:
| Post hoc, the namespace definition is changing.  Namespaces in XML 
| defines a namespace to be URI+(collection of names).

We're wandering off into philosophy a bit, but I'm not sure that there's
universal consensus that a namespace is a URI+(collection of names).
Another view says that a namespace is a URI+(all possible names) and
that many of those names are not defined.
