I beg to differ. It seems to me that just because user A and user B having chosen the same name for a new element they have each defined, we are not entitled to assume that the 2 elements are related, which I think would be implied by qualifying them in a generic "TEI Extension" namespace. I think that new elements should always be qualified by namespace URIs belonging to the user defining the elements.
