That sounds a bit like "Clean Namespaces" http://www.tbradford.org/clean-namespaces.html
but without the ':' to introduce incompatibility with W3C namespaces.

As I recall, this idea has come up on this list several times.  It works,
it's legal, it's compatible with DTDs ... the only downside I recall is 
the additional verbosity, and of course the inability to leverage tools
that recognize W3C namespaces and do the right thing (e.g., an XML
tool that recognized the XHTML namespace and applied HTML semantics
to elements in that namespace).
