It wouldn't be pretty, and you'd probably need two versions of POI. 
Firstly, you'll need to use xmlbeans to compile an alternate set of 
classes for the different schema namespace. Then, you need to take a copy 
of POI, and do a search+replace on all the places where we use the 
namespace itself (eg finding package parts, writing out files). Finally 
you will hopefully be able to open these files, assuming that the schemas 
are close enough other than the namespace
