Comment 1:

If the name space is not known, then package xml records the prefix instead. This helps
when people are parsing xml fragments. Yes, it's not strictly okay, but it's also not
hurting anything to handle that case.

Status changed to WorkingAsIntended.

Comment 2 by jim.robinson:

Then could the documentation be extended to indicate this?  Right
the parser documentation simply states:
    // Strict defaults to true, enforcing the requirements
    // of the XML specification.
which certainly implies it will follow the spec.
