Section 2 of the Namespaces rec declares

[Definition:] If the attribute name matches PrefixedAttName, then the NCName
gives the namespace prefix, used to associate element and attribute names
with the namespace name in the attribute value in the scope of the element
to which the declaration is attached. In such declarations, the namespace
name may not be empty.

  <foo:a  xmlns:foo="">In the foo namespace</foo:a>

is illegal

Can anyone tell me the reasoning behind this?
