           Summary: Attributes starting with xmlns: are conforming even if
                    illegal per Namespaces in XML

5.2 Conformance Criteria for xmlns:-Prefixed Attributes appears to state that
any attribute whose name starts with "xmlns:" is conforming, this apparently
would include even attributes that are not conforming per Namespaces in XML,
such as ones with non-XML characters in the name, or with multiple colons. I
assume this is not intended.
