[gdal-dev] Relax KML driver about xmlns

Would it make sense to relax a bit the KML driver here [1] so it
accepts <kml> root without xmlns attribute?

One user reported to me that he is not able to read this file [2]
using OGR KML driver and I found this is because of missing xmlns in
<kml> root element. The KML was produced by some unknown
software shipped with some GPS logger.

I'm wondering if there are more KML generators in use that
produce <kml> element without xmlns attribute.
