Suggestions for how to efficiently add scoped namespace support to 
JDOM are being discussed on jdom-interest.  You can subscribe at

If scoped namespaces can be handled efficiently, they'll be included. 
If handling scoped namespaces is extremely onerous and slow, then they
may not be included, at least by default.  It wouldn't be unprecedented;
I'm strongly suspect the Apache server has a few places where they
violate the HTTP spec for the sake of speed.  I *know* Tomcat does.

It's been a fun first day.  :-)
