Unfortunately, validation with namespaces enabled is not well defined yet.  It's not clear
to me
that the whole namespace mess will be resolved by schema.  (sorry!)

Funny that you should mention DocBook in this context!  The original Stylebook idea was to
do a

complicated and more verbose than necessary).
