Note that this implies that DTDs that allow the use of use xml:lang [etc.]
must explicitly declare:
<!NAMESPACE xml "http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace">
In fact, would it also be the case that *every* DTD that use
namespaces at all must explicitly declare**:
<!NAMESPACE xmlns "http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace">
Unfortunate? ... or perhaps it's just that "<!NAMESPACE xmlns ...>"
is the mechanism for signalling that namespace processing is in effect.
