if "processors" have to do this then the (base) architecture is wrong.

binding qualified names to universal identifiers is an "encoding/decoding"
problem. it is not a "processing" problem.

sorry to be so unequivocal here, but it is evident that i've yet to make the
point clearly enough to get across.

the suggested encoding as a XSC:Namespace is forcing the merging of two
problem aspects (the notation for symbols - and - the documentation for the
namespace regions) which belong separable.

i'll shut up about this 'till i figure out how to make it clear.
