Adding a namespace mapping for xmlns that didn't exist before is a 
lot more than an erratum. It's a major change in the spec, and it's 
being pushed as an erratum to try to sidestep for the normal and 
involved process for revising a spec to a new version. I'm not at all 
sure SAX should support this. I think the erratum should be removed, 
and the namespaces spec left as is.
