Tunneling own XML content in XHMTL etc.

Is it posssible to embed one's own elements within an XHMTL document,
in such a way that the XHTML part and the foreign structure can be
validated separately?

I would like to have something like this:

<html xmlns="">
    <div xmlns:fw="">
      <fw:xlist name="foo"/>

Unfortunately, this doesn't work.  And I can't find a suitable
loophole in the XHTML schema.

Eventually, I want to run a generator over the combined document and
lower it to XHTML, expanding things like table of contents,
references, etc.

It doesn't have to be XHTML per se, Docbook would probably work, too.

Would XHTML Modularization help with such a task?
