RE: [xml-dev] Global or shared namespace?

Just to add to the terminological morass, XPath 1.0 and XSLT 1.0 refer to
such elements and attributes as having "an expanded name with a null
namespace URI".

Whether any distinction was intended between "a name with no namespace URI"
and "a name with a null namespace URI", I really don't know!
