1) <?xml:namespace ns="http://www.w3.org/TR/PR-smil" ?>

The namespace id should be the URL of the Rec, not of the PR

2) The rules for case 2 seem confused

- why is it ok to have extensions when the DTD is > 1.0, but
not ok for a document with a 1.0 DTD ? In both cases, extensions
make the document invalid in the XML sense

- how can it be possible for a 1.0 player to process content in
an element that is empty in 1.0 ?

- why are unknown elements, attributes and attribute values simply
ignored ? why not make it mandatory that they must be qualified via a 
namespace ? Answer: if you implement this, you never get rid of the 
"a:" in a future version of SMIL.
