The XML specification does not actually say what processors should do when they encounter a name that is "reserved for standardization", but the consensus is that it is not an error to use such a name and therefore they should at most give a warning. If the name has been given a meaning in specification Z and the processor is implementing specification Z then of course it should do what Z says. If it has been given a meaning in specification Z and the processor is *not* implementing specification Z then the name should be treated as if it hasn't been given a meaning at all (though the case for a warning is rather stronger, assuming of course that specification Z was around when the processor was written).
