are you also gonna note things that apply to specific xml formats, for
example in XSLT 2.0, its an error if you try to bind a namespace node
whose prefix is already bound. Actually this can apply generally to
copying of namespaces, if I copy a portion out of a big file where the
namespaces are slightly different but they are actually the same
format, only with some markup that is no longer allowed in the copy
target that is present in the copy from.
