buglet in syntax / test cases

I'm having trouble understanding  the following wording from 6.1.2 in 
RDF/XML Syntax

All other attributes beginning with |xml| are then removed (that is, all 
attributes with ·namespace-name· 
accessors values     beginning with 
"http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace"). Note: the base URI is computed 
before any |xml:base| attribute is deleted.

Does this mean that an attribute named `xmlnewthing' should be removed, 
as tested in
or does it mean that an attribute that might be commonly written as 
`xml:newthing' should be removed?
