I seem to have missed something here ... We are talking about namespaces and validation? The issue doesn't seem to be the text before the colon in the element name. Isn't the issue that namespaces allow you to mix information from a number of sources, however you see fit? Every document can have different elements, and yet still be considered OK according to well-formed and namespace rules ... How do we handle _this_ behaviour, and still make some use of DTDs?
