This is not the case.  A document that doesn't use namespaces at all
certainly does have an infoset.  The only well-formed XML documents
that don't have infosets are ones that use xmlns or xmlns:* attributes
in ways *contrary* to Namespaces in XML.

"Xmlms" for "xmlns" is an interesting slip....

To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all.  There
are no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language
that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful.
