Hi Kent,

As far as I can tell, C14N already does this when you are document
subsetting (see Section 2.4).  When you are not document subsetting,
there is no need for it since the ancestor elements that provide such
context are present in the resulting canonical form.

How about adding "in-scope xml: prefixed attributes" to Element
Information Items?

xml:* attributes such as xml:lang and xml:space influence the
meaning of element content, and I think this inoformation item
improves consistency of Canonical XML and XML Infoset.
