As you say, a different namespace makes a different tag. This means that
a different namespace is sufficient to differentiate.

For the purists: OK, we won't re-use a tag, BECAUSE IT IS A DIFFERENT
TAG, because of the namespace. I don't long for re-using tags per se.
But this is not the point. 

My point is that we will get very similar JEPs with almost identical
schemas and examples. I would like to avoid that.
