I think at a minimum all that is needed is a new property or commandline switch which enables
or disables strict Ant processing of xml markup e.g. allowing us to have rich xml documents
with embedded Ant markup.
I also like the the per namespace approach; I have a block of time later on this week to knock
out the first step, will give it a go.
