What kind of application can handle this?

My point is that the typical XML application doesn't *need* to handle the
example you gave.... and if it *does* the vocabularly will be well-enough
understood that the prefix is unnecessary.

I'm not saying namespaces are useless, simply that many people don't
need them.
