  So you want to ban any Jabber like processing of XML by forcing the
universe of vocabularies usable in an instance to be known at the
time and by the framework where you emit the root opening tag ? 
  I think I disagree. Even if it would clearly be simpler, it would be 
a problem in a number of cases, XSLT and Jabber being prime examples.
