So no HTML, where the DTD supplies the xmlns attribute (the namespace
declaration)? That wouldn't be so cool. Putting the xmlns in the DTD
is a very good way of keeping the markup clean.

Maybe the DTD should be given more power.

That looks very useful. There would have to be a rule saying that an
NSTOKEN occurring as a prefix which there is no declaration for passes
as a namespace. Why not?

In case you wonder what an NSTOKEN is: It is defined as an NMTOKEN minus
the colon.
