When I write my stylesheets, then, will I have to write the following?

(a) namespace aware for element:  <mycompany:para>

    <target-element type='www.company.com/para'/>

In comparison to the following:

(b) non-namespace aware for element:  <para>

    <target-element type='para'/>

(c) architecture aware for element (either explicit or through DTD):  <para

    <target-element type='mypara'/>
