Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The infoset mapping is intended to be the minimum required to make
the output of the HTML parser usable in an XML pipeline. The HTML parser
doesn't support "xmlns", and therefore it would be inappropriate to have the
infoset map "xmlns" attributes to something namespace-related in this way.

Fundamentally, using "xmlns" and "xmlns:*" attributes in text/html is bogus,
anyway.
