  Hi all,

  While working on my 5th edition implementation testing I hit a problem
with the latest version of the test suite:

test rmt-ns10-035 : xmlconf/eduni/namespaces/1.0//035.xml failed to parse the XML
xmlconf/eduni/namespaces/1.0//035.xml:6: parser error : Attribute a:attr redefined
<bar a:attr="1" a:attr="2"/>

the test is described as 
<TEST RECOMMENDATION="NS1.0" SECTIONS="5.3" URI="035.xml" ID="rmt-ns10-035" TYPE="not-wf">
Attribute uniqueness: repeated identical attribute

and defined as

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!-- Attribute uniqueness: repeated identical attribute -->
<foo xmlns:a="http://example.org/~wilbur"

<bar a:attr="1" a:attr="2"/>


 Seems to me there is a typo here. This is an XML-1.0 base well-formedness
error because it has the same attribute used twice on the element. I guess
the intent was to have
  <bar a:attr="1" b:attr="2"/>
(or the way around) which then is a namespace redeclaration issue.

Not seeing anything on the archives since Sept last year I assume this
wasn't raised yet and best discussed in the Core WG list :-)
