Regular expression for valid namespaces?

We have some code which parses incomming SOAP requests before deserialisation so that some data can be extracted in case the deserialisation process fails. The only problem is that the soap namespace is hardcoded so the code fails if the client uses a different value, as some of them do.

What we actually do is find the <soapns:Body ... > tag so we can look at he one directly after it, but rather than hardcode I was going to use the RE to match the desired entry and then find the index location, which utilises existing code.

Is this likely to work or cause issues if the message has its own Body element in another ns?
