This has been done.  Mike Kestner suggested using a namespaces.xml file;
I chose not to do this as it made the migration of
monodocer/monodocs2html/ecma-provider easier.

Monodoc will currently look for the older filename and rename
accordingly; ecma-provider will check for both, with a preference for
the non ns-prefixed name.

monodocs2html currently requires the ns- prefixed files, as I couldn't
think of an easy way to do the fallback within the XSLT.
