I think that if the three different namespaces happen be interchangable for the purposes of YOUR process then it is YOUR responsibility to say so. This implies that XSLT, Namespace-filters for SAX, DOM etc.need extensions for stating that two namespaces are interchangable for a given task. Yes, there should also be a way for a namespace creator to globally state that a namespace is a subset of another namespace but the lack of such a declaration cannot be blamed on the XHTML people.
