Mea Culpa.

I read it, it looks good, and I was going to implement it as an  
amusing project until I realised I couldn't stick it in our release  
with a :tmp: namespace, hence all that stuff...

I may find stuff when I get around to implementing it, of course, but  
at a glance, it looks generally good. My only real worry was the  
namespace declaration at the top-level, because in our  
implementation, that will trigger a slower processing of XML in case  
that's used inside stanzas - teaching our implementation what it  
means, even if we don't implement it, will cure it, but I wonder if  
we can avoid that somehow.
