you are suggesting a problem where there is none.
leave the prefix <-> namespace-region mechanism alone. it's not bothering you.

unless the purpose is to document the prefix, then the schema encoding should
take the form

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml:namespace ns="http://www.purl.org/NET/XSchema/v1" prefix="XSC"?>
<?xml:namespace ns="http://simonstl.com/" prefix="NewSpace"?>
  <XSC:Namespace ns="http://simonstl.com/">
    <XSC:Doc>The namespace (region) above is a total waste of time</XSC:Doc>
  <XSC:ElementDecl name="NewSpace:WasteOSpace">

otherwise, you're encoding things which you do not mean.
