http://www.w3.org/2001/SMIL20/Language is the namespace for the SMIL 2.0
Language Profile which is the profile that is implemented in RealOne, so
this is the correct namespace to use.  http://www.w3.org/2001/SMIL20/ is
the namespace for the complete set of SMIL 2.0 modules.  Since the
Language Profile does not use the complete set of SMIL 2.0 modules, it
is the wrong namespace to use.

If you use the SMIL 1.0 DOCTYPE, you cannot use any namespace
attributes.  They are not defined in the SMIL 1.0 DTD, and therefore not
valid in a document that uses that DTD.  In addition, you should not use
a SMIL 2.0 namespace in a SMIL 1.0 document, unless in the way specified
in the SMIL 2.0 Language Profile document:
<!-- no DOCTYPE! -->
<smil xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-smil"
       xmlns:smil20="http://www.w3.org/2001/SMIL20/">
...
</smil>

Where did you find <smil xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/SMIL20/">?
