I have backtraced the root of the problem to SAXBuilder and the fact
that the "namespaces" feature is hardwired to false which prevent
correct handling of schemas. Setting the property to true seems to solve
the problem. 
BTW, why is this property hardwired to false ? Why isn't there a way to
programmatically set the property ?
