Comment(by ahocevar):

 Thanks Tim for the explanation on this. I was missing several pieces when
 I wrote this comment.
  1. I didn't see that GeoRSS, KML, ArcXML and OSM formats use the default
  1. My sources of wisdom were the
 [http://www.w3schools.com/dom/met_document_createelementns.asp W3Schools]
 example (which seems to be incorrect) and the [http://msdn.microsoft.com
 /en-us/library/ms757901(v=vs.85).aspx#Y87 MS docs] example (which doesn't
 use a namespace).

 Having said that, I just confirmed that Tim is right, by looking at the
 [http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2-Core/core.html DOM Level 2 Core Spec]:
 // Introduced in DOM Level 2:
   Element            createElementNS(in DOMString namespaceURI,
                                      in DOMString qualifiedName)

 Strangely enough, while I was able to get the above error message
 occasionally a few days ago in Safari 5.1, I wasn't able to get it again
 today. Which makes me think we should just close this issue and assume
 that it's a browser bug.
