See my proposal from yesterday that allowed partial namespaces 
(http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200908/msg00033.html ).

If you make the namespace more obviously separable from the local name, (for 
example, by using a : rather than another .), then the XML parser can be 
informed as a local implementation that namespace org.ietf.html is an alias 
of namespace org.w3.html (or better still, namespace html.ietf.org is an 
alias of namespace html.w3.org).  So when the parser encounters 
<body:html.ietf.org> it can return the equivalent of <body:html.w3.org>.
