If we accept my proposal for namespacing only the class attribute, then 
it doesn't matter which approach you choose--they are all functionally 
equivalent for the purposes of processing DITA documents. So if you want 
a DITA world with 18 namespaces to start, go for it. If you want a DITA 
world with no namespaces, you're good to go. It just doesn't matter from 
the standpoint of DITA processing or validation (using architectural 

It also means I don't have to make my brain hurt thinking about whether 
or not Erik's analysis of the nut case is correct :-)

The issue of qualifying class names is a separate issue, but I think 
it's an easy one solve. I'll post about that in a separate thread.
