That is one example. Mis-attribution is another. This came up just
today: I was looking at this svg

http://www.pinkjuice.com/svg/svgz/pinkSVGUIs.svgz

and it declares a bunch of elements in the internal subset, but does
not declare a namespace for them.

Batik refuses to display it, as it cannot create those elements in the
svg namespace. Adding a namespace declaration and corresponding
attlist, it is happy again.

I would count that as a 'bug or error in a namespace'
