!  That's good to know...

I guess it all comes down the fact that the prefix isn't expanded to
the URI.... which is the root cause of the problem of XPath requiring
the prefixes to be mapped elsewhere.

I guess there is an argument for dropping the URI altogether, and just
using the prefix.  Some things would get harder, but many more would
get a lot easier.
