Yes. That's it. The dbjava: and dbperl: in my examples are two
namespaces that would include a (different) <methodsynopsis> element.
The semantic meaning, processing expectations and content modules would differ.

Doesn't architectural forms provide a solution to this? syntax is different, but with a mapping pi the two could make good use of the same styling? See Arjun Rays excellent example on xml-dev this week.
