Okay, this appears to work, so I will go with it for now.

How do people normally process a document for a particular namespace?  Do they have one class or a set of classes that process that namespace only?  I've set my system up so that one class processes a namespace (ns1), and when it encounters a tag for another namespace (ns2), and the schema for ns1 says that's a legal tag, then it calls into the object designed to handle ns2.

Does this make sense, or am I missing an important point somewhere?
