That is like saying you prefer element names with a '.' instead of those
using camel case, so you write a filter to lowercase any characters and
preceed them with a '.'. All you are accomplishing is taking a valid XML
document and invalidating it because you didn't like the way the author
defined it. You certainly are free to do with a document whatever you want,
but I would think you could spend your time on more usefull endevors. Local
element declarations are usefull and important for certain use cases.
