           Summary: [XPath21] Consistency constraints do not place a
                    restriction on the use of the xmlns namespace
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Member-only Editors Drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XPath 2.1
        AssignedTo: jonathan.robie@redhat.com

This also applies to XQuery 1.1

Section 2.2.5 contains the following constraint:

In the statically known namespaces, the prefix xml must not be bound to any
namespace URI other than http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace, and no prefix
other than xml may be bound to this namespace URI.

This should also enforce that the prefix "xmlns" is not bound to any namespace
URI and that no prefix is bound to the namespace URI
http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/.
