Surely this isn't specifically a namespace issue? Wouldn't precisely the 
same set of processing options arise with,

      <a_leaf />
        <a_leaf />
      <a_leaf />

IMO the problem is how to process a document instance given only partial 
knowledge of the intended document type and/or semantics. I can't think 
of any particularly good reason why there should be a generic solution 
for that.
