What's a filter? If you mean a Transformer then it's because a
transformer doesn't gets to a sitemap instance to request internal
resources (and I have to say I like the way it is now because I don't
think it make sense to sitemap components to have a instance of a
sitemap at hand). With the SAXConnectors C2 has transparent XInclude
capability which I think is totally cool.

The ns attribute is a suggestion from Stefano and the prefix comes from
the recent sitemap aggregate discussion. I think both (ns and prefix)
are totally necessary because you cannot prevent name collisions without
it. Stefano also suggest to promote that to the w3c (but I think nobody
took it there)
