Processors can load multiple RDDL documents as necessary for the
namespaces contained in a document.  Is the algorithmic work difficult
when the particular schemas for each namespace don't support any notion
of modularization?  Sure.  Is that RDDL's problem?  I don't think it can
be RDDL's problem, nor do I think there's a good way to resolve those
issues through RDDL itself.

On the other hand, I hope the existence of RDDL gets people out of the
notion that a namespace is a complete vocabulary and drives them to
design tools - schemas, software, whatever - that are capable of working
in composite document environments.  We need those, RDDL or not, and
their development will enhance RDDL as well.
