Good catch.  This comment is erroneous - the namespace only applies
to things that are prefixed "edi", which the "x" element clearly
isn't.  The comment should say that the binding of the prefix "edi"
to the URI "http://ecommerce.org/schema" appliesto the "x"
element and contents.

To be fixed. -Tim
