Comment:
Zeros says we should add a note here saying something like "In the HTML
serialization, namespace prefixes and namespace declarations are
non-conforming and are do not have the same effect as in XML. In particular,
the colon has no special meaning in HTML element names." or some such. 
(depending on what happens with -41, anyway)
