Dieter said he wanted to do this:
We _could_ re-express that as
<name xmlns="http://www.tei-c.org" type="city">
and (eg) an XSLT specification would handle it appropriately. Of
course, its not valid against a normal TEI DTD, but that has to go out
the door whatever happens.
I suspect we need Dieter to expound the problem in more detail to see
whether namespaces solve the problem. Lou's suggestion of simply
extending the DTD does not fly, in my view, because of the need to
record the origin of the extensions by namespace.
