OK, probably not the fairest of answers -- it's a bit of a one-off -- 
but not as bad as XQueryX :)

I think one thing that has not happened is that nobody has created and 
reused those dozens of modular schemas for things like addresses and 
names that we all imagined five years ago.

One possible growth area for namespaces that will make the examples less 
contrived is if lots of documents from different schemas being stored 
natively (either native XML databases databases or native storage in 
RDBMSs). Once that data starts being joined, the need for namespaces 
should become more apparent. Ditto the use of XQuery in heterogenous 
join engines.
