Where in the XML Information Set
http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xml-infoset-20040204 does a notation have a
Elements (2.2) have [namespace name], [local name], and [prefix].
Attributes (2.3) have [namespace name], [local name], and [prefix].
Notations (2.10) just have [name].

Since the information set only includes [name], this would imply the prefix
is not ignorable and there is no matching on the namespace URI.

Your statement surprised me quite a bit ... I never thought notations were
I've always known that processing instruction targets may be named by
notation names, and sure enough Processing Instruction Information Items
2.6 has [notation], but nowhere there does it say the notation is
namespace-qualified ... and I've never seen a processing instruction target
