I think it's pretty clear that Crimson has a bug here.  I find Piccolo's notification quite surprising.

Just a couple of brief results from Python parsers:

$ cat foo.xml 
<doc xmlns:xml="http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace"/>
$ 4xml foo.xml
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?><doc/>
$ xmlproc_parse foo.xml
xmlproc version 0.70

Parsing 'foo.xml'
Parse complete, 0 error(s) and 0 warning(s)
