In a YANG deviation file, any node being deviated requires an explicit prefix on all elements in the node's path. However, if a deviation statement includes a new must statement, does that must statement require explicit prefixes on any node name it includes, or can an implicit namespace of the node being deviated be assumed?

The only examples I have found show explicit prefixes, but I can't work out from RFC 6020 if this is required or not. Can anyone clarify?
