I decided to fix this by adding the following text to the definition of an
implied namespace binding, in addition to taking the approach shown in comment

Definition: The implied namespace binding of a QName is the
association of its namespace prefix (or absence thereof) with its
namespace URI (or absence thereof).] [Definition: Two namespace
bindings are said to conflict if their namespace prefixes (or
absence thereof) are the same but their namespace URI's (or absence
thereof) are different.] 

Update operations that result in conflicting namespace bindings
generally raise errors, as described in this document.

   <add>However, if the namespace prefix of an attribute is absent, it
   is in no namespace, and an update operation can create such an
   attribute in an element even though its implied namespace binding
   conflicts with a namespace binding in the "namespaces" property of
   the element.</add>
