Just so there is no possible confusion arising from the overhang of
the namespaces&attributes threads of the last few weeks, please
confirm that

  a) getURI should return the empty string iff getRawName returns a string
     without a colon;

  b) The 'uri' argument to getType and getValue must be empty for them 
     to succeed if getRawName returns a string without a colon;

  c) An exception should be thrown if an element or attribute name is
     encountered with a prefix for which no declaration is in scope.
