      Description

      If xmlsectool is asked to sign a document whose document element already declares the xmlns:ds prefix, the signature element it generates will nonetheless also include an xmlns:ds prefix declaration. It would be better if it didn't do this.

      Chad says this is probably due to an issue with the underlying xml-security library not paying attention to context.
