In article <firstname.lastname@example.org> you write:

I understand your point, but there is still a clear distinction to
- Namespaces in XML defines how element and attribute names are
interpreted as referring to namespaces. It specifies the
namespace (or no namespace) that a qualified element or attribute
name is in.
- Given an element in no namespace, there are many ways a user can
interpret it. XML Schema provides support for two different
interpretations. It doesn't change the fact that the element
is in no namespace.
