Sure, I originally skipped message as from subject line I got impression
it's related to slides only.

Autoguessing is here just for backward compatibility. Ideally namespace
should be passed by ns parameter. Problems you have seen in slides
titlepages are caused by missing ns parameter in the build script.

Thanks for the patches. There are many good ideas in your code, but I'm
little bit worried about backward compatibility -- in past we have tried
very hard to keep old titlepage templates to work with newer versions of
stylesheets. I'm not sure whether this is still true with all your
proposed changes.

Also what's not clear to me is whether your patch will work with non-ns
version of stylesheets which is primarily targeted for DocBook V4.x.
Your code has several tests for DocBook namespace which suggests that
you target only ns version of stylesheets.

For example how titlepage will look like for for HTML (not XHTML, so no
namespace) for non-ns stylesheets (DocBook V4.x, again no namespace)?
