Re:  Element equivalence under XML Namespaces
Well I suppose as follows:

a reserved name is reserved for usage by the W3C.
If it is a reserved name that is in use then it has a W3C determined meaning.
If it is a reserved name that is not in use then to use it is
incorrect - but it does not have a W3C determined meaning.

So if xmlns is used it should either raise an error because it starts
with a sequence of characters that is reserved and which has not been
defined in the particular parser or it should pass because it is a
sequence of characters that has a known usage, that usage being
specified by the W3C.
