Re: SAX Filters for Namespace Processing

My point in this is that Stack info is being maintained either way (within
the Filter), which Simon already alluded to.

In the 'more clean' defaulted example you have *exactly* the same problem.
If you copy givenName and familyName into another document it can easily be
molested by an alternate default namespace

<person xmlns="http://simonstl.com/person">
  <!-- cut here -->

<otherdoc xmlns="http://simonstl.com/otherdoc">
  <!-- paste here -->

It is clean but the same problem exists, I don't know if re-identifying the
element is the right solution.
