So that people ommit to include SYSTEM ids and that the documents can't
be read by common namespace aware XML parsers any longer? We've had this
kind of behavior in one of the versions of the Adobe SVG reader awhile

around the world just "forget" to declare the xlink namespace... 

Doesn't seem such a good idea to me :-) ...
