Ludger, you may want to research the use of
identifiers, system and public, in DOCTYPEs. For
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
In a legal sense, the PUBLIC id signifies a vested authority
over a namespace. Such an authority has rights to the
correct interpretation of names in that namespace.
That is somewhat old school these days, but nonetheless
a useful way to inform XML implementors with regards to semantics.
The case of a mixed namespace document is murkier because
when DOCTYPEs were invented, mixed namespaces were not
supported. In one sense, an aggregate is a snapshot
of a network of components so all the 'who gets to
interpret correctly' issues begin again. I like to
think of that as Walter Perry in situ.
BTW, Michael: we'll keep Cuba safe at least until after
Charles and Camilla Windsor complete their job
interviews with the HR people at the White House, and
make their decision about accepting possible job offers
to take over as the new American royals.
