           Summary: SVG documents are validated even if namespace is not
                    declared
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: check
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: ccprog@gmx.de
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org


Just like XHTML, SVG needs a mandatory xmlns attribute on the root element.
Unlike XHTML, the validator doesn't give a warning if it is missing. 

I suggest this should be resolved just like Bug #68, even though namespace
handling remains an awkward issue.
