Oh, I'd just missed the one failing test.  Showing only failing tests

Hmm.  For the any-namespace test you could use a non-HTML node that 
happens to have .style (like SVG, say).

For the no-namespace test, you'd want the harness to be somewhat 
different here...  Maybe ask John Resig if he has any ideas, since he 
presumably knows this code pretty well?
