Sorry, perhaps that wording is less clear than it should be.  By "S
includes . . . the negated namespace name . . ." is meant "S includes
a namespace name, which is the name negated in/by the other

So if e.g. 
  O1 is not(http://www.example.org/ns1)
  O2 is { http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml , http://www.example.org/ns1 }

then O2 "includes the negated namespace name".

Hope this helps.
