1) Can I have multiple prefixes in the same file that point to the same 
namespace?  The namespace spec doesn't appear to prohibit this.

2) How do namespaces and XLinks work together?  For example, suppose I link to 
the <Foo> element in another file.

a) If the <Foo> element is prefixed (that is, it is really <Bar:Foo>) does my 
pointer need to know this?

b) When I get the <Foo> element back as a result of resolving the link, do I get 
<Foo> or <Bar:Foo>?  And if I get <Bar:Foo>, do I also get a namespace PI 
telling me about the Bar prefix?
