In JCR (Java Content Reppository) 1.0 (JSR-170), all names used in the 
API were passed as prefixed names, and there was a seaparate API to 
get/set namespace/prefix mappings.

In JCR 2.0 (JSR-283), we have extended the API to accept names in Clark 
notation everywhere previously only prefixed names were allowed.
