Perhaps too simple. :-) In the event that you wanted to fragment your data further and the original namespace was significant in the new context, you would meed to obtain from the higher level element and make it explicit when you do the fragmentation. I suppose the feeling was that you can create your data in the way that you described, then apply a simple tool to make the namespaces explicit, and that this was preferable to requiring the manipulation when the data is being fragmented. > Rev.
