[jdom-interest] Namespace and getChild()

Just out of curiousity, I was wondering why if you call
Element.getChild( elementName ) without explicitly passing a namespace,
why does JDOM assume no namespace rather than assuming the namespace of
the parent element ( the element you are calling getChild() against )?


It seems like that since when the XML is parsed, child elements that
don't have a namespace defined inherit their parent elements namespace,
that the getChild() method would behave the same way when not passing a
specific namespace in. 


Just my $0.02
