<Philip`> http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/ - "Names beginning with the string  
"xml", or with any string which would match (('X'|'x') ('M'|'m')  
('L'|'l')), are reserved for standardization in this or future versions of  
this specification."
<Philip`> http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-names/ - "A namespace (or more  
precisely, a namespace binding) is declared using a family of reserved  
attributes. Such an attribute's name must either be xmlns or begin xmlns:."
<Philip`> That seems a bit contradictory
<Philip`> given that "this or future versions of this specification" !=  
"any XML related specification"
