This is *precisely* my point as to why QNames (i.e. in document content) are
otiose. A processing node can be expected to determine the provenance within the
internetwork addressing scheme of the documents is uses as source data, and from
that provenance to draw its own local inference of their relationship within its
locally-understood taxonomy.
