add-attribute adding namespace declarations.

I'm a little confused about add-attribute.

7.1.1 p:add-attribute

it says ...
"This step cannot be used to add namespace declarations."

But in the required test

The input document is:


<title>Some Title</title>

<para>Some paragraph.</para>


and the output after 2 add-attributes is supposed to be '


<title xmlns:test2="" test2:foo="bar">Some Title</title>

<para>Some paragraph.</para>



Which clearly has had a namespace declaration added to the xml.

That seems useful, but in clear contridiction to the spec.

So which is correct ?
