Each generator may want to use a namespace of its own for its particular
foo. I am not an expert in this. If that's considered good XML taste,
then that should be illustrated in an example or two.

I certainly want to allow that - indeed, I don't know of a way to disallow it.
But I don't want to require this approach.

It also occurs to me that as a practical matter, a lot of Sieve generators
produce what amounts to a list of rules. (Our implementation works this way.)
Perhaps an example of a "rule list" sieve done first with the built in
annotation capabilities and then again using the separate namespace approach
would be helpful. Thoughts?
