xmlns attributes...

I had an action item from the XHTML Working Group and the RDF task force 
to find some way to validate documents that declare additional 
namespaces without resorting to the "internal subset trick" that was 
enabled by XHTML Modularization.  I have submitted a patch against 
version 0.8.0 of the validator, attaching it to the relevant bug already 
in the issue tracking system [1].  This is not really complete - I think 
I need to understand if there are contexts where this option should NOT 
be enabled.  Currently, the patch just enables it all the time.

I look forward to comments on this potential change to the validator.  
If you want to see it in action, I have brought up the validator with 
this change at [2].
