I agree. As you point out, what is needed is linking to a RDDL document
for a particular document type, rather than a particular namespace.
I think one of the things that was confusing me was that when people
defined the purpose of RDDL, they said that it was to provide
information / resources about the elements in a particular namespace.
But when they gave examples, it was always with respect to an instance
document that might have elements from multiple namespaces.
While the information about a particular namespace is useful at design
time, it often lacks the context (as when an element occurs in a larger
document) to be useful at run time.
