Plus the delights of c2s vs. s2s communications. I declare prefix foo: 
between my client and server for namespace X, your server declares 
prefix foo: between itself and my server for namespace Y, what does my 
server do when I try to send a stanza to you with the foo: prefix for 
namespace X? The solution would be hardcoding prefixes, but that way 
lies madness...
