I'm not sure I understand that comment, the solution is about adding a 
namespace node to a constructed element, that dpesn't lose type 
information. If the data you are outputting is placed into am element 
attribute or content then that's essentially just outputting its string 
value and losing type information unless the constructed element is 
re-validated, but adding a namespace node isn't the cause of that loss.
