------- Comment #3 from davidc@nag.co.uk  2007-01-15 13:42 -------
section 2.3 of c14n explicitly says
...except omit namespace node with local name xml, which defines the xml
prefix, if its string value is http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace.

So I think that the canonical form never has a declaration of the xml
namespace.
Since the published results are not in canonical form but the xml comparison is
supposed to involve generating the canonical form of each and comparing them,
I think that the expected result files are technically OK as they are,
although,
there's no reason not to make the expected result files be in canon form, which
in this case would mean removing the declartion.
