4.12 Namespace Declaration specifies that it is not allowed to redeclare the     
xml and xmlns prefix(XQST0070).    
    
A module declaration also allows an namespace binding to be done: "In the     
statically known namespaces of the library module, the namespace prefix     
specified in the module declaration is bound to the module's target     
namespace".    
    
I don't see what makes it invalid to do for example "module namespace xml =     
'example.org/ns';".

In other words, from what I can tell there is none which says XQST0070 should   
be raised if the code "module namespace xml = 'example.org/ns';" is   
encountered.

I think we say this clearly in "4.12 Namespace Declaration", but in several   
other parts of our spec where we create namespace bindings, we do not refer to   
section 4.12, and do not state that the same error conditions apply.

One way could be to not "duplicate" specifying namespace declaration, but to,   
in the case of module declaration, state that it is module declaration /plus/   
a namespace declaration, and then map it into 4.12 Namespace Declaration such  
that 4.12 takes care of all namespace related.
