[xmlsec] Encryption and namespace

Daniel, you are right. Extending the error check condition in xmlsec 
does not solve the problem, it just supresses error reporting. A more 
detailed view to the decrypted xml showed me that the decrypted 
namespcace was missing after parsing.

<a b:type=""/>  will be parsed and serialized to  <a type=""/>  which is 

There is another idea I have about parsing partial xml.
Would it be possible to set up a parserContext from an existing 
xmlDocPtr? In this case it should be possible to correctly parse a 
single subelement and perform all checks correctly (even namespace 
definition checks).

Regards Matthias
