Microsoft with its "xmlData" is not only one guilty. In XML Core WG we
thus decided to lift this restriction as reserved element and attributes
names can be put in xml: namespace. So if everything goes well next
erratum or edition of XML Rec will not contain this restriction and it
will be allowed to use element named xmlData.
