The Infoset specification explains all this.  The XML namespace "xml"
attributes (and all attributes with "xml" at the start) are
interpreted to give the appropriate Infoset Infoitems and
properties.  See also Namespaces in XML (for "xmlns") and XML Base
(for "xml:base"), normatively referenced from the Infoset specification.

There is no 'undoing' going on.
