If I wanted to publish a little XML vocabulary for donkey genetics,  
all the elements would have names like  <org.tbray.donkeys.father> and  
<org.tbray.donkeys.birth-date> and so on.  And if this were being used  
by IETF when we did atom, the tags would be like <org.ietf.atom.feed>  
and <org.ietf.atom.entry>.  That's all.  Distributed extensibility,  
and you can mix & match without asking anyone. -T
