I have not been following this (other other namespace related
threads), but it occurs to me if you take aquarium:tank out of context
it fundamentally loses its link to the  namespace e.g.
xmlns:aquarium="http://www.aquarium.org".

Prefixes are just prefixes, nothing more then a hint/reference to
something important (and hopefully specifically unique) ... once we
start thinking there is a shared dictionary of what prefixes are,
instead of a namespace URI isn't this where problems start creeping in
?
