[jdom-interest] Bug for TODO with addAdditionalNamespaces()

This is in the TODO:

* Fix bug where addNamespaceDeclaration() doesn't check for conflicts 
  with the same prefix already existing on the element or being the 
  element's own prefix already

You don't actually have to walk up the tree to fix this, because you can
override a prefix at any point; you just can't have to decl's of the
same prefix on the same element.
