Subject Re: CForms binding with namespaces error - advice wanted

I think this is where things go wrong.

Note that both binding file and source are generated with a pipeline and 

I've done some debugging into pipelineUtil.toDOM and this is what I found:
- binding file has all the namespaces in pipeline. This is confirmed 
because I can save the output of the pipeline and see the namespaces in 
the root element:

<fb:context xmlns:fb="" 
xmlns:oe="openEHR/v1/Version" path="/oe:version">

- After returning from SourceUtil.toDOM (which uses the default 
DOMBuilder()), the only namespace left is 
Attributes of this node only holds 'path=/oe:version'.

- This is true for the source=pipeline situation as well: only the 
oe="openEHR/v1/Version" is left.

- The source=file situation has all namespaces in the attributes.

I can understand that in the situation of source=pipeline there cannot 
be any matching because the oe namespace is not known in the binding 
file. However, this is also true for the situation of source=file and 
there matching happens on various fb:context until it fails on a 
difference in datatype.

What I also don't understand is the fact that putting the 
source=pipeline through the savedocument function as I did this morning, 
gives me all the namespaces back.

I'm not sure if this helps in the discussion and I have no clue on how 
to solve this.
