Section 3 of Namespace 1.1 states that the prefix xml is bound to the
namespace name
http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace.  Version 1.1 then goes on to state
that it
may or may not be declared. 

But, it does not state what the effect is of declaring it.

Specifically, it does not say if the xml:lang declaration shall be consided
into schemas, etc.  I have heard both argued...xml:lang is automatic as well
it must be declared.

If we are going to change the text to state the declaration of the namespace
optional, then we should state what the effect of the declaration is...is
in scope when the declaration is left off?
