This kind of test is very easy in Schematron. Something like:--

<rule context="eg:container/*">
    <ssert test="namespace()!=' ' ">Any children of an eg:container must 
be in a namespace</assert>

<rule context="eg:container//*">
    <assert test="namespace()!=' ' ">Any descendants of an eg:container 
must be in a namespace</assert>
