I am, in fact, saying that any data model that claims to support 
namespaces and XML Schema must carry this baggage. We could simplify the 
XQuery/XPath/XSLT data model if XML did not come with these features.

In general, I think that our data model does a good job of simplifying 
what we inherit from XML Schema. Namespaces ... are tough. I don't know 
how we could do better. Do you have any concrete suggestions here?
