The current version doesn't because it's just a proof of concept with a
minimalistic XSLT based implementation. If it was clearly built upon
Relax NG, there would be no reason not to cover all the features of
Relax NG.

In any case, even if it included elements borrowed from the XML syntax
of Relax NG, I think that it should better keep its own namespace since
keeping the same elements with the same namespace and a slightly
different usage would be too confusing.

I'll give it a try, then!
