This, of course, is a problem that language designers should consider.

I assume that namespaces, from my experience with xsd more than xsl, are things that are meant to be observed by translators. I now begin to wonder how I specify operations on elements in a particular name space but from what Michael has said it seems they are simply "syntactic sugar" to enable unique identification (avoid naming conflicts) in single passes. Is there a way to specify that a style sheet processes only the elements of a particular name space? I don't think there is, but it sounds like something I could use for code modularity.

With respect,
