This is an issue indeed, but are we sure that this browser would support
any new mechanism better than DTDs in a near future?

Also, you can still use DTDs at authoring time to provide default
namespace declarations and run your document through an XSLT identity
transformation before sending the document to that browser... If you're
lucky, maybe you can even get the transformation done by the browser
