As a side note I'll also add that xmlm's handling of namespaces is  
going to keep attributes of the xmlns namespace instead of removing  
them. This allows to know which prefix bindings were done in the  
document. Given how output is going to work chaining xmlm's input with  
output  you'll get the same prefixes that were present on input  
(provided the same ns is not bound to two different prefixes in a  
given context in which case there may be differences).
