I cannot name the name because of potential commercial conflict,
and because they may have fixed it now for all I know, 
but there was a well-known XML tool which hardwired every "schema"
element to be an XML Schema. This would not work with Schematron
schemas, which also use that word for the document element's name.

That is a case of not hardwiring the prefix, but hardwiring the local
part regardless of prefix, which is more innovative.
