I'm not sure what the "root namespace" is, but basically: An un-prefixed attribute is considered to be in the same namespace as the
element where it is declared. (See the XML spec: "...the interpretation of unprefixed attributes is determined by the element on
which they appear.")

So, I don't think we need to add a prefix the all the elements.

Maybe Felix or Jirka can expound on that fascinating and magical aspect of namespaces and attributes.
