Presumably that's not what you really mean.

This document is uncontroversial I think.  The document is well-formed
but uses a reserved element name, which is unwise.

  The prefix xmlns is used only to declare namespace bindings

(and Namespaces 1.1 says the same).  This should be changed to use "MUST".

NE05 should be changed to add to disallow the use of these namespace
names as the default namespace.
