This is because the namespace spec says that xml and xmlns
prefixes are special cases: the xmlns prefix is not bound to a
namespace URI at all, while the xml prefix is bound to a specific
namespace URI and cannot be changed. Hence these prefixes had
to be treated as special cases in the DOM as well.
