I think that you may be confusing a namespace and a namespace declaration.
You did lose a namespace declaration.  However the input and output
documents are equivalent.  JDOM does move namespace declarations up to the
outermost necesary element.  In fact JDOM doesn't keep track of where
declarations occur so the "problem" is that when xmloutputter is used, it
has to create the declarations as needed.
