[Bug 11338] Elliott Sprehn suggests a note here saying something like "In the HTML serialization, namespace prefixes and namespace declarations are non-conforming and are do not have the same effect as in XML. In particular, the colon has no special meaning in HTML

Namespace prefixes and namespace declarations don't have the same effect in
text/html as in XML, but they're conforming in some cases, e.g.,

<!doctype html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<title lang=en xml:lang=en>...</title>

validates as HTML5.  The DOM produced here would of course differ between XML
and text/html (although this particular example doesn't parse at all as XML).
