This would mean that the NS processor would simply check for ":" in the
element name, and on finding it, it would try finding the
namespace declaration (of the kind xmlns="....") which matches prefix
found. That's it.
Am I right?

And the application on behalf of whom the XML NS processor is operating
can take care of validating the namespaces if that's what it intends to do.
Am I right?
