> Yes. The namespace is, in fact, the identified resource.

This clearly is not the case (and the namespace spec only says that
namespace names are identfiers of a resource not that they are the
resource. It's like saying that children should be given saint's names,
it doesn't mean that they become saints (whatever the parents may hope).

Name any URI that specifies a resource that is not a namespace,
and I'll show you a conforming document that uses the URI of that
resource as a namespace name. the existence of this document does not
change the nature of the resource identified by the original URI.
