I'll offer an "example" (and a refutation thereof) that I'm somewhat surprised has not yet been absorbed into XML Namespaces catechism. I have in mind Q8.5 in Ron Bourret's XML Namespaces FAQ: http://www.rpbourret.com/xml/NamespacesFAQ.htm#q8_5 Note that the example is rife with the usual fallacy of presuming "single vocabulary defaulting must apply even when it obviously doesn't" - IOW, excogitating syntactically visible names in isolation - to conclude that there is a "name collision problem". I provided a refutation more than three years ago: http://www.nyct.net/~aray/sgml/demo/dept/ The refutation has the virtue of using working software (and *old*, at that!) to demonstrate the falsity of the example. It also has the flaw that classical AFs are overkill for such a demonstration in theory. That is, I had to develop a considerable amount of schema-related overhead to make the AF-based demonstration work (but it *does* work), when with a more modern approach using merely the key component of AFs - control attributes in the instance markup - a suitably modified parser could do all the necessary work and thus demonstrate that this is indeed merely a parsing issue only. (Note that some of the stuff in the session.txt file consists of ESIS output rather than pointy brackets. The point there was the "C" at the end, overkill to demonstrate not only the extraction but that the extraction was also schema-valid.)
