Clearly. Note that it's discarded silently, with no error message.

According to https://askubuntu.com/questions/307066/i-cant-add-domain-type-kvm-xmlnsqemu-http-libvirt-org-schemas-domain-qe#458370
the namespace is discarded if it's not used, but the attempt to use
it is what gives the error from virsh:

error: (domain_definition):5: error parsing attribute name
        <qemu:arg value='-object'/>

I presume that's because the namespace isn't being found at the URL,
but that's just a guess as there's no explicit indication..

I know it's in the documentation. Either the documentation is wrong or
there's something else missing.
