What happens in my patch (attached for reference) is unified processing
of namespace declarations, whether it's in form xmlns:prefix='url' or
xmlns='url'. As I understood from your explanations, I should not treat
xmlns='url' as namespace declarations when I process them in
XmlTextWriter.WriteStartAttribute(). Yesterday you shown me a test case
in which DOM API creates xmlns attribute, which does not declare a
namespace. Is that a bug in both Mono/MS.NET, or a bug in the DOM API
and ECMA standard, or was that done on purpose? If so, what was the
purpose of allowing such strange attribute name? I call it strange
because you can not declare xmlns attribute in XML source text, it's a
reserved word. Tell me as much as you know, so I can fix the patch the
best way.

Thank you.
Andrew Skiba.
