Just to be clear, even if mods and mads have different namespaces, there
wouldn't  be both a  <mods:title> and <mads:title> unless mods and mads
definitions' of title differed.  If it is a common definition then that
definition would occur in one or the other (or a third, for a common type
library) and both would reference it from that  namespace.

Conversely, if mods and mads have the same namespace but different
definitions of title then we'd have to have different title element names,
e.g. <modsTitle> and <madsTitle>.
