Hmm, now I checked HTML5, and it indeed says that HTML elements must be in
XHTML namespace. Yet, this is not what I get from Firefox 2.

Also, this appears to clash with XPath spec (which is very explicit about null
namespaces, see <http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath#node-tests>), as queries like
"//div" would no longer work in HTML.

I guess our XPath implementation could be tweaked to account for this issue
instead, but this would mean a rather unpleasant mismatch in behavior of
different parts of DOM.
