The recently released xmlns() scheme draft 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/xptr-xmlns/> makes it even clearer that 
namespace bindings from the XML document in which the XPointer 
appears do not apply to the XPointerr. This draft explicitly states:

The XPointer Framework on which this specification is based dictates 
that the initial namespace binding context prior to evaluation of the 
first pointer part consists of a single entry: the xml prefix bound 
to the URI http:/www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace.
