It's actually not confusing, but *wrong*, I believe. If it's meant to be
reusing the old element from the original OAEP algorithm and if the
default namespace in effect for the new 1.1 schema is the 1.1 namespace,
the old element has to be qualified when referenced in the new schema.
They both can't be unqualified/defaulted.
