Doesn't this depend what you call _the_ namespace spec?  I would take _the_ 
namespace spec to be the latest one; i.e. 3rd edition.  As you've stated 
above, this has the note about deprecation in it.  Does the W3C have a 
different idea?

The next thing to sort out is what the W3C's definition of 'deprecated' is. 
I would say it means that the above XML is legal for a legacy piece of XML 
(appealing to Namespaces 1st Ed), but illegal for an XML language defined 
after the publication of Namespaces 2nd Ed (Aug 2006).
