My point is that I think you can not, in XML. But css3-namespace (if we 
read the last sentence of 3.1 as not just about syntax validity) seemed 
to hint that there was a difference.

I think I just misunderstood it, and the resolution if your previous 
email makes more sense: it’s only about the at-rule being syntaxically 
valid; empty namespace and no namespace are the same.
