Try setting:

    RootElement.addNamespaceDeclaration( namespace );

I was having this problem too.  The above resulted in the namespace
declaration being added to the root xml element, and when I read in the file
the attributes had the correct namespace.

P.S. It might be a good idea to add this to the javadocs and/or the online
