this won't matter, since the uri is always global.
so long as you offer the implement the option which you refer to below in the
parser, the dynamic context of the application itself is managed distinct from
that of the document, and distinct from that of any eventual dynamic context
within the document.

this "application specified" prefix should be that which is "passed through
the interface". not the uri.

the parser should do this.
