all files where name spaces are used

Better use of name spaces.

Going over the elements in the OpenDocument-v1.2-part1-cd04.pdf.
It was obvious a lot of elements have a name space in front of them.
This seems rather like a waste of space considering the tricks xml can do.

Why not have a name space element that can encapsulate other pieces of
content that no longer need the name space prefix for each element.
This has some advantages, smaller files is a nice one.
When copy and pasting svg, it is more efficient because it's almost pure svg.

<namespace: svg>
    //all sorts of svg
</namespace: svg>

<namespace: text>
</namespace: text>

Proposal: easier namespace handling by using an element that
encapsulates other elements. To tell the application it's all in that
If different name spaces have the same element, then the fall-back
would be to put the name space anyway.

This can enable significant savings in large documents.
