So far, I'd like to think that I can choose the namespace to 
fit the exigencies of potential XML processing, and so I'd
like the above to remain readable after eg. 's/show/pt'. If
we're generating XML, the PWT namespace might well be the 
default and unnecessary to write. I.e. namespace:tagname in 
XML doesn't normally get read as a phrase. "data" and 
"format" passes this test (I liked Ty's comment about the 
unfrozen programmer), but "as" doesn't. I'm too uninformed
to make any better suggestions though :/ 

Maybe "format_as" and "format_with" ..
