I am quite possibly confused but I thought xml namespaces required that 
the namespace be

1. The namespace indicated by the specified prefix

2. If there is no prefix, then the current default namespace must be 
used. (defined on some containing element, be it the top element or some 
other containing element with an xmlns="some uri").

If an unprefixed element is taking on a namespace not declared with 
xmlns="some uri" (which is different from xmlns:foo="some uri") aren't 
we blowing it in implementing namespaces correctly?
