I note that this introduces a new QName -> URI mapping -- it should be noted
that QNames are attribute content which gives me a slight whince. In any
If there is no fragment identifier, acts as though
the fragment identifier "#/" had been specified,
returning the document root.
Should this be "#" -- a 'bare name'? -- in which case I agree that this is
probably the most appropriate QName -> URI mapping. Otherwise is this
intended to be a bare XPath? e.g. http://example.org/foo#/element-name ?
In any case I am not entirely comfortable with having a QName within
attribute content which is intended to represent a URI, particularly until
we can agree on a 'standard' QName -> URI mapping.
