Actually the reason xmlns="" is allowed on SVG and MathML fragments is to
enable copy/paste from XML source to text/html source, and the reason xmlns=""
is allowed in on HTML fragments is to enable the same document to be used in
text/html and XML contexts. Being able to copy from XHTML source to text/html
has not been a goal.
