I'll have to look at the code again, but it looked like a bug to me: the
API of the DOM-1 calls was not changed but they started failing when
using the DOM-2 code, and there was no reason for them to fail. They
failed because the DOM implementation code was not accounting for the
null namespace qualifier in the dictionary.
But it's possible I've misunderstood how the code is supposed to work
and inappropriately fixed it.
