Why do we need one root element (or multiple namespaces)? I'm not aware of
any qualifications in the XML namespace spec that requires namespace'd
fragments to have a root element...??

Frankly, I see the pub/sub stuff as fragments which we embed into other
documents to gain additional functionality. I see nothing wrong with top
level verbs (like publish/subscribe).
