I'm ambivalent about this.  QNames in content sound like a
Really Bad Idea on the face of it, but on the other hand
of all the RECs to come out of the W3C, XSLT is the only
one in which namespace issues don't cause a tremendous
headache to end users.  It shifts all the pain onto XSLT
implementors (thanks, Mike :-).

I'm not sure how this could be accomplished without QNames
in content.
