Since use of a prefix would be most convenient for XSLT 1.1 and use of a
namespace URI would be most convenient for SVG and other applications
that may be generated using XSLT 1.0, could we have an implements
attribute whose value is a union type, either a NCName or a
URIReference? If relative URI's are explicitly prohibited for script
namespaces, there would be no overlap of their lexical space.
