Only if the two vocabularies are designed to work in this way. If the
outside vocabulary has an element that says:
"<ignore_everything_inside_here_for_summary_purposes>" then the internal
summarizer should not be run. Or it might say
"<summarize_everything_in_here_backwards>". An even worse case (this is
the XSLT case) is where the inner element changes the interpretation of
the outer.

It would be nice to believe that these cases won't happen but if there
is no specification out there describing how you are supposed to use
namespace and how not to, then what's wrong with them?
