This seems fine to me.

Unsure about the second note: doesn't xmlns="" put an element into the
"null" namespace in XML? Not sure this note is even needed, maybe it
should say: In XML serialisations all elements must be declared in the
"http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/" namespace.

May be worth making a note that inherited attributes (particularly
@lang and @dir) can (should?) be declared on the root element.
