I wasn't saying that namespaces are inherently useless, rather applying 
some forensic design work to figure out what's wrong with them. Do any 
introductory namespace texts use XSLT as the motivating use-case?

I'd be interested in seeing any that manage to pull that off, because 
the oft-quoted disambiguation case isn't too common in XSLT, in my 
experience, at least no more common than two different kinds of 
<address> elements in a document.
