In Saxon (as a SAX event consumer) I actually depend on the qname always
being present, despite the fact that SAX doesn't guarantee it. I've never
encountered a parser that doesn't provide it, and I'm reluctant to write
code that incurs a performance penalty (and which I can't readily test) to
guard against the possibility of someone writing such a parser. I think
there's a good case for making the value mandatory.
