I fully agree with what you are saying, and can happily confirm that 
this is indeed the idea: The added vocabulary will go into an extension 
profile, and thus be available as a separate module, to be explicitly 
referenced from a different namespace.

In fact, I hope that a similar strategy may be chosen for other ports, 
such as the Website and Slides vocabularies, when they are ported to 
DocBook 5.
