But again, this is confusing namespace and definition; isn't it?
Regardless of how you do the namespaces, the definitions will need
different names if they are different.  Except ...

... in RNG, you can have a base definition in your library, and then
redefine it on import.   You can see a MODS-related example here, where
I include mods in docbook, but redefine the mods extension element to
allow docbook content (for editing support):

Can you not do that in XSD?
