Question regarding MZ notes

I just started looking into this certification.
I'm reading MZ notes and has a question regarding SOAP notes.
In Chapter 2, MZ says


are OK.

I cannot see the difference. Is SOAP-ENV a keyword?
Cannot I use:
and assign xmlns:xyz to the URI and this works the same?

Can anyone tell me why he says "this form is OK OR this is OK"?

SOAP-ENV is not a keyword and it is a prefix that is bound to The xmlns attribute to the <Envelope> tag to give the SOAP-ENV prefix a qualified name associated with a namespace.

xmlns:SOAP-ENV="" ...>

is the same as

xmlns:xyz="" ...>
