That's probably due to the fact that the JDOM has a NO_NAMESPACE with ""
as its URI.  It's carrying through to DOM.  At minimum DOMOutputter
should be smarter.  The right solution is probably to have a better way
of handling no namespaces.  Need to investigate if there's any issues
with just using "null".
