I'm not sure what the original reason was for doing this, since that
decision was made before I started working on the code.  Probably the
original author wanted to steer developers to the element factory code
or maybe it was for performance.  I would expect newer apps would be
using Namespaces and thus the createElementNS() method.  The old element
factory code still works for non-namespace XML docs for backward
compatibility.  In any case, I just made it non-final in the latest CVS
