Thanks for catching this mistake, the following exceptions have now  
been added to Document::createElementNS() in the uDOM:
INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: Raised if the specified local name is not an  
XML name.

NAMESPACE_ERR: Raised if the qualifiedName is malformed per the  
Namespaces in XML specification, if the qualifiedName has a prefix  
and the namespaceURI is null, if the qualifiedName has a prefix that  
is "xml" and the namespaceURI is different from "http://www.w3.org/ 
XML/1998/namespace", if the qualifiedName or its prefix is "xmlns"  
and the namespaceURI is different from "http://www.w3.org/2000/ 
xmlns/", or if the namespaceURI is "http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/"  
and neither the qualifiedName nor its prefix is "xmlns".
