Thanks Richard.  I am aware that relative namespace URIs 
are deprecated; however, they are still well-formed XML 
and conform to the namespaces spec (to be addressed 
in XML version 1.1?).  In any case, I'd still like to 
know if anyone is still using them (a year and a half later).

Furthermore (and more importantly), I'm interested to 
know if URI fragments are being used by any mainstream
processes or schema.  In particular, case "B" as 
given by the previous question...

B.  xmlns:foo="http://somehost/somepath#fragment";

Thanks so much!
