Yep. It would work in the same way as extension namespaces, so you'd
list prefixes that were classed as documentation namespaces, and the
processor would just ignore them.

Only that it's less tedious to say that 'html' is a prefix for a
documentation namespace and write:

  <html:p>blah blah blah</html:p>

than it is to have to write:

    <html:p>blah blah blah</html:p>

each time you want to add a comment.
