Lots of existing content uses attributes named "xmlns" -- see e.g. 
<http://philip.html5.org/data/xmlns.txt>. (Only 45 pages in the data set 
had XML content-types, so this is pretty much all text/html). It seems 
that compatibility requirements will make it impossible to base anything 
on the "xmlns" attribute.
