First of all, pardon me for being a broken record, but the actions of
*PROCESSORS* are unaffected by xml:space - check the spec.  I don't
understand what actions, in the context of the above document, would
be considered a violation of the namespace spec.  All the NS spec says
is which namespace URIs are in effect, and that is not ambiguous at
all in your example.  What am I missing? -Tim
