XHTML 1.1 DTD does not enforce xmlns attr for html element?

in http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=3385 we received a  
bug report claiming that the validator does not complain about the  
lack of xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" in <html> element for  
XHTML 1.1. Indeed, this is a requisite for a strictly conformant  
document[1], but a quick look at the (flat) XHTML 1.1 DTD doesn't  
show me that this attribute is #REQUIRED.

Am I missing something? Is this an omission in the DTD? On purpose?
