that is exactly what "nsURIMapping" and "usedNamespaces" does. On 
"startPrefixMapping()" a prefixMapping is assigned and kept until 
"endPrefixMapping()" called. In unpatched state SAXHandler cleaned those 
mappings after every element, there was no "endPrefixMapping" handler.
The "ns[0-9]+" case is a fallback that is not even used in the MODS-case 
as "xlink" could be resolved properly. It is just in the code to 
definitively not overwrite an attribute in the default namespace.

Hope that clarifies my 2nd patch (2001-07-25) a bit.
