You mean DTDs. I don't recall any normative schema provided with XHTML 1.0.
But point taken and yes I don't like that, meaning one namespace 
corresponding to multiple document definitions. So perhaps we need a way 
to group node names under something like a namespace for processors to 
be able and make use of those (a browser for example). Personally, I 
would like the namespace to point to such a document definition and the 
element names (when appended to the namespace URI as fragment 
identifiers) to point to their type definition (the fragment of the 
document definition).

Which sounds insane today.

Why? I don't usually hard-code stuff and in XSLT (as with anything else) 
you can initialize a variable with either namespace as a value; not 
exactly a nightmare.
