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.
