/**
 * The Name Space Manager tracks the association between a NameSpace
 * URI and the PRInt32 runtime id. Mappings between NameSpaces and 
 * NameSpace prefixes are managed by nsINameSpaces.
 *
 * All NameSpace URIs are stored in a global table so that IDs are
 * consistent accross the app. NameSpace IDs are only consistent at runtime
 * ie: they are not guaranteed to be consistent accross app sessions.
 *
 * The nsINameSpaceManager needs to have a live reference for as long as
 * the NameSpace IDs are needed.
