I wonder what this means re XML Namespace specification....its obviously not possible to declare
2 default namespaces via markup.

also, without going through the spec explicitly I am unsure if an element can legally exist
in 2 namespaces at once. 

this is one for xml-dev no doubt; 

as an aside, my build systems operate on and consume a wide variety of markup with many processors
(Ant being one of them)... I tend to explicitly declare my default namespaces to ensure disambiguation.
