I don't know what you call a 'huge namespace', but I'm thinking of an RDDL
document with lots and lots of arcroles. Earlier in the thread you mentioned
the possibility of having, in a RDDL document for X, some stylesheet
resources with a arcrole of 'Y' to transform the X documents into Y
documents. The RDDL spec also reckons that the precise list of arcroles is
not known yet, can you guarantee that there won't be more than, say, 50 ?
