Ignored? or an error? and what does ignored mean? ignore an element and
all its children, or (html style) ignore the element and process the
children. 

xmltex actually implements the last of these, but I would never have
wanted to claim that it was in anyway "authorised" to do that for any
given document type, it just does.

When wearing a standards hat (as opposed to a TeX hacker's hat) I'd
expect that the correct behaviour was to raise an error unless the spec
for the document type explictly allowed foreign namespaces.
