It's genuinely ugly already :-) As you point out, don't really have a choice. The alternatives have been pretty thoroughly discussed in the SAX extensions naming threads a few months back, and all boil down to URIs or something else based on DNS. I haven't thought of the problem of the same URI used in different contexts (namespaces, XLink, maybe a name in XSLT). I think the recommended practice should be not to use the same URI in more then one context. I'd hesitate to make it an actual requirement, though, unless sufficient experience is gained.
