There is no global rule about the semantics of embedded namespaces. Any rule that handled the book/html case would fall apart in the face of XSLT/XSLFO. That's one of the reasons they were so contraversial all those years ago. Nevertheless, they have found widespread use as a trigger for specific processors, like XSLT engines. You see them often used to introduce a code vs. literal distinction or a "built-in" vs. "user-defined" distinction. For instance, if a vocabulary had a "CustomProperties" element, it might be defined to allow arbitrary attributes but only attributes that are namespace qualified. Paul Prescod
