Namespaces 1.1 is tied strictly to XML 1.1, and its new features are
only enabled for XML 1.1 documents. The syntax xmlns:foo="" is
illegal in XML 1.0 documents. (xmlns="", which undeclares the default
namespace, is legal in both).
The same goes for the other substantive change in Namespaces 1.1: the
use of IRIs as namespace names. However you'll find that most XML 1.0
processors didn't check anything about namespace names, so you probably
won't get an error message from a 1.0 processor.
