This is fine, but it wont get all the namespaces, which I need for a
correct implementation (not hacked) version of the
SimpleName/MemberLookup.  Those would only be possible if I have full
visibility of all the namespaces available.

Having *some* of the namespaces visible is not useful, but the code you
posted will be useful (I will keep a copy) when I add user types.
