Although it breaks the elegance of the purest of pure 
intentions of namespaces, something like this is needed.

The namespace URIs many times become sacred untouchables
and therefore impede changes to specs for fear of 
interoperability (rightly so). Isn't it so?

When I implement these fine XML standards, I often think 
it'd be most excellent to have greater (optional) 
granularity than the URI. I don't care much how, as long 
as the mechanism is there somewhere.
