I saw things like
"http://schemas.ggf.org/bes/2006/08/bes/naming#BasicWSAddressing" and
having these things called "expanded QNames", if I'm not wrong.

However, I would vote for something similar to the first alternative (can't
recall now whether <NamingProfile/> is in the besnaming namespace or not)
as it leaves you or any tooling the freedom to declare namespaces (like the
besnaming) at any place or context where it fits.
