   RE: namespaces for name attribute values?

Perhaps you do not really have a problem.  What I'm thinking is that if you
wrote something similar to the example you showed,

<foo xmlns:DC="http://purl.org/metadata/dublin_core">
   <DC:Creator>Eric Hellman</DC:Creator>

then the meaning of DC:Creator is not affected by any additions made to
Dublin Core.  Your DTD remains valid, simply not as extensive as the
(expanded) Dublin Core.

This is certainly not a solution to all the issues that might arise when
combining elements from multiple namespaces, but it appears to work fine for
the example you cite.

Hope this is helpful,
