 XmlTextWriter.WriteEndElement does not output namespace declaration if 
 the prefix is "xml".
 I'll add a test case named "WriteStartElement_XmlPrefix" (marked 
 NotWorking) to XmlTextWriterTests.cs that allows you to reproduce this

+It rather looks like Microsoft bug (prefix "xml" does not require
+declaration and it should not be overwritten, so the declaration is
+totally extra, though not violating the spec). I don't think there is
+any reason not to report it to Microsoft but to treat it as if our
+implementation were buggy.
