At this moment - the helper is not doing anything with the namespaces,
since the task registration can only deal with the tag name.

I don't think it's a good idea to decide on any particular use of 
namespaces for ant1.5 - just to have them available and pass this info
to the task factory ( assuming the task factory proposal is accepted).
User code can do whatever it wants with it. 

BTW, I think Peter was right that SAX1 helper should remain the default,
in order to have more feedback and experience with the SAX2 one.
