Okay I understand the argument, of course what I was doing was something
I should imagine lots of xml people are in the habit of doing, extending
the document for my purposes, which had nothing to do with graphical
rendering in this case. But it's okay I can just do it in another way.
Noticed there's no problem extending an element with namespaced
attributes, that's good.

thanks, hadn't ever looked at that part of the spec before, who knew I
would need to!
