Bob, you don't have to keep track of anything yourself if you use
SAX2, org.xml.sax.helpers.NamespaceSupport will do it for you if you
need it, multiple prefixes and all. In particular, processName(),
returns a 3-tuple based on a colonified name.

I'm not sure if this answers the OP's question, though, or if he wants
to use SAX at all.
