    I use namespaces to filter out different steps in an SAX based
    XML pipeline. On namespace will inject calendars to a document,
    another will run simple includes. I'm attaching namespaces to
    elements and attributes both. 

    I'm also using them a lot in my XSLT 2.0 code. I don't create a
    template without using modes, and attaching a namespace to the
    mode names. It makes it much easier to reuse transforms this way.

    I'm plinking around, of course. Attempting to learn this stuff myself.
