Again, this reeks of featuritis. It would work for only the most 
basic cases. Some uses of W3C schemas, almost none of XSLT and XPath. 
I suggest ditching this method and just letting the client choose 
write the namespace prefix like any other text. After all, the output 
is neither malformed, namespace malformed, or non-canonical if the 
client supplies the wrong prefix for attribute values or element
