That would be silly -- lazy evaluation works fine for this kind of
thing.  I hate to sound stupid, but I still fail to see how Namespaces 
causes any problems at all for someone dynamically generating a
document from a database -- if you want to use names with a URI part,
use them; if not, don't.

All the best,
