Is the following statement true?? How is geronimo being able to process 
deployment plans without declaring all namespaces in a plan and 
qualifying the elements?

The XML spec does not require a schema for well-formed XML documents.  From
your description, it sounds like Geronimo has written a custom application
that "knows" how to load the XML stream without reference to any schemas.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to use a general purpose modeling tool like
EMF (or any other Java-binding framework) without well-defined schemas and
their required namespaces/prefixes.
