Why does the <dkhm-host:create> element exist? What semantic purpose
does it serve? The whole command is already an epp:create/host:create
command, so this should be simpler:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0">
      <create xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:host-1.0">
        <addr ip="v4"></addr>
        <addr ip="v6">0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1</addr>
      <contact xmlns="urn:dkhm:params:xml:ns:dkhm-host-1.0">TEST1234-DK</contact>

Also, why is the <contact> element in a "...dkhm-host..." namespace? A
DK contact is a DK contact; a namespace of
"urn:dkhm:params:xml:ns:dkhm-1.0" would make more sense to me. It's not
like we foresee that we might have other meanings of "contact" within
the DK registry. (What's next, a separate <contact
xmlns="urn:dkhm:params:xml:ns:dkhm-domain-1.0"> element?)

XML is complex enough; we must, every step of the way, strive for
