I'm not especially fond of this solution - namespace interpretation gets
significantly more convoluted, and the prospect of assocWith finding its
way onto namespace-qualified elements (not so weird an idea, in some
ways) is kind of frightening - but I am working on implementing it.  It
has some substantial advantages in reversibility, and may serve well for
developers who need to preserve the "unqualifiedness" of the elements.

I should have another version of the filters up today or tomorrow,
depending on if I can figure out why AttributesImpl.addAttribute() seems
to hang silently and completely on my system.
