Because UniversalNames are conceptually unitary, and it's hard to
see "http://www.baz.bar/zam FOO" as a unitary object (unless you
come from the ITS world, where " " was the pathname delimiter).

I'm switching to "^", which is ASCII but illegal in both URIs and Names.

I've also simplified the property name for the underlying parser
to just "org.ccil.cowan.sax.NamespaceFilter.useParser".
