Ah, thanks for pointing that approach out. The good news (at least for
us) is that we are setting this up in an environment where the authors
and editors will have very little interest in what specific namespace
prefixes are used. So we can be a bit heavy-handed if necessary and
specify the prefixes for them.

Thanks for your help.
