I have a question on the standard XML namespace specification located at
this URL:


In this schema, references are made to entities with the prefix "xml", but
this is never declared as a namespace prefix using "xmlns".  Is this a case
where the prefix is just known and does not need to be declared?  This seems
strange since other well-known prefixes such as xsd and xsi must be
