I can state with 99.999% certainty that the Shib IdP would not send that
namespace prefix without the corresponding namespace declaration.  This
code has essentially been in use for over a decade.  If there were such
an egregious bug, we would have found it long ago.

The receiver (SP) is at fault here.  (And sadly, this is not unusual. 
We have seen lots of fundamentally broken XML processing over the years
- like trying to do it with a regex or similar).
