Because (the last time I checked) there is nothing in the SAX or DOM APIs
that JAXP supports that will in any sense automatically resolve a namespace
prefix in text contents (or attribute values), irrespective that it is
declared to be a QName.
I have to assume you know that "JAXP supports W3C XML Schema" only extends
to validation and you are just expressing wide-eyed disbelief that all XML
APIs have not extended themselves to accommodate the PSVI? ;-}
