This has nothing to do with XSPF, "xmlns" and the "xmlns:" prefix are
used in namespace declarations (see http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-names/).
The XML standard reserves names beginning with "xml"; they are no real
attributes, just syntactic sugar and your parser should take care of
them for you.
That's different from "xml:base" (http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlbase/), BTW,
which you have to handle manually.
