That's very easy with XML namespaces :-)

Yes, very different -- source and gls:source are completely different
attributes which for example means that in order to read their value in
XPath or using some XML API (DOM, SAX, ...) you have to use different code.

Yes, it's valid against

Yes, but namespace is "urn:oasis:names:tc:xliff:glossary:2.0", prefix is
not important at all. And this snippet is not valid against schema I
reference above.

No, they are different

No "source" attribute is not in any namespace.

Probably yes, I don't know where schema for itsm is. But schema for
glossary requires attributes to be in namespace, except "source".
