XML namespace declarations in SP config files

Dear all,

Why are there duplicate XML namespace declarations in the SP
configuration files?  For example, in shibboleth2.xml the top-level
SPConfig elements sets the default namespace to
urn:mace:shibboleth:2.0:native:sp:config, but it also sets the conf
namespace to the same value.  attribute-policy.xml does the same thing,
where both the default namespace and the basic namespace are set to

I ask because I'm writing a Salt state formula that generates these
configuration files, and I want to make sure to emit the correct XML for
use with the SP.

Best wishes,
