They tried this more or less with SVG. It seems that nobody really understood
the concept of namespaces. Lots of ocntent out there uses xlink:href="" where
xlink is bound to no namespace. The leading product simply assumes that it is
bound to http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink ignoring the fact that the document is
non namespace-well-formed.

And that content quite often generated with some tool...
