Reminder: The namespace name itself does not have to be the URI reference
which is dereferenced. It can be bound to one (or to many!), thus removing
the conflict between "names have to be stable" and "references have to be
relative". See, for example, my xmlns-binding: sketch, or
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#xsi:schemaLocation for illustrations of
solutions that decouple these and thus allow the two conflicting sets of
requirements to be statisfied independently.
