According to the XML Schema re-interpretation of namespace semantics,
they are alternative representations of the same thing, one with
elementFormDefault="qualified" and one with
elementFormDefault="unqualified" (which is the newly invented usage, and
the default!)

So yes they may be equivalent, and given that the new usage pretty
effectively breaks the namespace processing model of existing tools like
XSLT I can see why Simon would like to convert them.
