Help is always welcome :) I suspect that the problem is caused by
the fact that LibXML2 attribute namespace has a different memory
representation from the namespace declaration. In this particular
case the problem is that attribute namespace *is not* returned in
the list of nodes selected by XPath expression.

  Hum ... are you suggesting it's a bug ? The XPath data model clearly
differentiates attributes from namespace.

The change is more or less trivial but it requires *very* carefull
testing. My estimates is that change itself would take about an hour
and testing would take another 3-4 hours. And it's more than I have
these days :(

  How is the weird serialization generated ? Is the redundant
xmlns information pushed as an attribute instead of a namespace ?
Maybe there is some fixup needed at the libxml2 tree API too.
