Yes, I think one thing we've learnt from the problems with "namespace
nodes" is that representing all information in terms of nodes is a bad
idea, because nodes carry too much baggage - they have identity, they
belong to a document, they have a parent. Can two elements in different
documents share a "type node"? If the context item is a "type node",
what is the value of "/"?
