I'd expect that it is the responsibility of the Namespace designer to
specify this: there is no single set of rules that will work for all
> 2) How should a validating XML parser deal with namespaces?
The validating parser must validate against the DTD -- the validation
(at least, as defined by XML 1.0) doesn't concern Namespaces.
