This is the single most important thing anyone can learn about XML in 
general. This is the fundamental reason why namespaces are of little 
value: the fundamental model of composite scoped (embedded) parsers and 
processors is a specialised model, and even it doesn't need them. The 
specification renders even that specialisation far more complex than it 
needs to be.
