You can do _all_ of it with both?  I had pictured
a combination punch to solve the problem.  I see 
namespaces and architectural forms as yet another 
complementary system within XML.

Namespaces uniquely identify an element's structure,
and archectural forms describe the mappings between 
these various structures.

I don't see one or the other used.  I see them 
being used in combination.  What am I missing?
