Patch to implement ignoring xmlns: attribute declaration errors

Actually, since XHTML family document types adhere to the XML and XML Namespace
recommendations, Comment #4 is correct - any xmlns:whatever attribute should be
permitted on any element.  Unfortunately, this is somewhat challenging to
implement in validation engine that we have available.  I have a patch for
"check" that permits it to ignore errors of this type against the 0.8.0 beta. 
I will attach it here.
