xmlns: attributes disallowed making Ant uncompliant with XML

           Summary: xmlns: attributes disallowed making Ant uncompliant with
                    XML
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.4.1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: malcolm.sparks@iona.com


Ant still retains the following code in org/apache/tools/ant/ProjectHelper.java
around line 300. 
This means that generating build.xml documents with namespaces, often resulting 
in xmlns: namespace attributes, cause Ant to fail.
The XML specification says that any attributes in the xmlns namespace should 
always be allowed. 

            for (int i = 0; i < attrs.getLength(); i++) {
                String key = attrs.getName(i);
                String value = attrs.getValue(i);

                if (key.equals("default")) {
                    def = value;
                } else if (key.equals("name")) {
                    name = value;
                } else if (key.equals("id")) {
                    id = value;
                } else if (key.equals("basedir")) {
                    baseDir = value;
                } else {
                    throw new SAXParseException("Unexpected attribute \"" + 
attrs.getName(i) + "\"", locator);
                }
            }


Could the following case be added? :-
                } else if (!key.startsWith("xmlns:")) {
