I don't think it's necessary to specify these rules in detail. Any
output that satisfies the round-tripping constraints is acceptable. The
philosophy of the serialization spec is to state the basic constraints
that the output must specify, and beyond that, to be non-prescriptive.

Subject: [Serialization] IBM-SE-008: Serializing namespace nodes

Serialization Section 4, "XML Output Method": This section should
specify the rules for serializing namespace nodes in the form of
namespace declaration attributes. Does every namespace node attached to
an element node result in an xmlns-attribute in that element's
start-tag? Can the xmlns-attribute be omitted if it is present in the
start-tag of a parent element?
