Global or shared namespace?

It's probably a troll, but the fact that we consider that some elements 
and attributes have namespace names (to take the terminology of the XML 
Infoset) which can be undefined (or that they do not belong to any 
namespace to take a wording comonly used) is difficult to explain (it's 
  making any statement about namespaces much longer).

What about considering that these elements and attributes belong to a 
"global namespace" or "shared namespace" which would be the same for any 
document and which URI would be either null, undefined or set to a 
specific value (to be defined) ?

See you in Orlando for XML 2001.
