I guess my concern is that jdom won't have enough information
to ever move a declaration.


<a xmlns:foo="http://foo.org/">

	<b expr="//.[@foo:name="toast"/>

There, you don't know where xmlns:foo is actually used,
so can you truly move it around with any certainty?

XPath doesn't really care where they are declared, but
rather the scope of the declaration.  Any movement will 
change that scope, no?

I've misplaced your email referencing the patch.  Couldja
resend, so I might try it out?
