This is well-formed WRT XML 1.0 (two different attributes, bar1:att and bar2:att). A parser that is not "namespace-aware" certainly shouldn't complain about it. If a parser is "namespace-aware", i.e., checks conformance to Namespaces In XML, then the document is in error, as it violates the constraint that no tag may have two attributes with "qualified names with the same local part and with prefixes which have been bound to namespace names that are identical." But this is not a well-formed error. The first version of the namespaces recommendation does not use the term "well-formed" at all, and while the 1.1 version does, it is not used in this context.
