            Bug ID: 20251
           Summary: [Ser 3.0] DOCTYPE declaration - prefix in name

          Severity: normal

Section 6.1.7 para 1 states:

The name following <!DOCTYPE MUST be the same as the local part of the name of
the element.

However, XML 1.0 requires:

Validity constraint: Root Element Type

The Name in the document type declaration must match the element type of the
root element.

and I believe "element type" here means the lexical QName as written, including
any prefix, since XML 1.0 is not namespace-aware.
