OK - the case deserves to be made, even if at the expense of any claim I
may make to intellectual consistency.
 it means all namespaced elements are uniquely typed by their names,
which reduces the complexity of implementing processors using non-PSVI
aware tools (obviously I'm thinking of XSLT / XPath here and below)
 it makes it easier to process local elements since each local
element's first name-spaced ancestor will be of a type that is uniquely
determined by its name
I think that the case starts to fall down if there is any expectation
that instances will be mixed in to documents with alien elements.
