The DOM Core module and the new Namespaces in XML draft are
inconsistent. The prefix xmlns is still not mapped in XML namespaces.


[[[
The prefix xmlns is used only for namespace bindings and is not itself
bound to any namespace name.

[[[
Note: In the DOM, all namespace declaration attributes are by definition
bound to the namespace URI: "http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/". These are
the attributes whose namespace prefix or qualified name is "xmlns".
Although, at the time of writing, this is not part of the XML Namespaces
specification [XML Namespaces], it is planned to be incorporated in a
future revision.
