As far as I know, the only difference is when you try and produce
human-readable XML documents. In this case, there are often ad-hoc
conventions regarding which prefix maps to what namespace (e.g. for the
same namespace, xhtml: is more readable than, say, ns1:) -- which might
be useful for people writing, say, editors.

There might also be a difference when browsers are attempting to recover
broken xml, but that's probably not an issue here.
