  effect of namespace on collection function; weird
I remember having this raised as a usability issue but we decided at the time that we do not want to keep track of two default element namespaces :(.

Best regards

But it still changes the default both for constructing new elements and for accessing existing ones. What the user wants here is different defaults for the two cases.
