Thanks for the report.

You are right that the fix for bug #23440 was not correct. I now pushed
a hopefully better version to master.

Note however that your test above has two problems: First, it's invalid
XML since you're using an undeclared prefix (so the parser should rather
throw an error, but I'm not eager to make the xml parser more strict, as
there's a lot of invalid XML in the wild). Second, I don't understand
why you let-bind `xml-default-ns' to nil. This will break namespace
expansion, and it will actually do this for the whole Emacs session if
xml.el gets autoloaded during the above.
