Re: Are namespace declarations 'counted' as attributes?

They don't "all have different answers".  Standards and programs
dating from before the XML Namespaces specification naturally regard
them as ordinary attributes.  Updates to those standards have to find
some compromise.  Newer standards are namespace-aware and treat them
as namespace declarations.
