> Algorithm to normalize namespace prefixes
This fails if the document you are normalising makes use of prefixes in
places you haven't normalised. For example if the document happens to be
an XSL stylesheet it will have XPath expressions all over the place, and
prefixes appearing in namespace-alias attributes etc. In general how are
you to know in a general XML document where th enamespace prefixes are?
any string might be (say) a URI employing XPointer. If you remap the
prefixes in the declarations but not in the XPointer, you break the link.
