It seems to me that as soon as you are using multiple XML documents
or facilities "together," then you need a non-flat namespace.
For example, who gets to use Signature as an element name. XMLDSIG
or the digitizer that outputs a base64 GIF? A digitally signed and
timestamped image of someone's "john hancock" seems like it would
run into insoluable conflicts.
What about marking up typed data? Is that an XSD floating point, or
a VAX/VMS G-format floating point number?
