The local part in that case is not referring to markup or an XML
vocabulary at all, it is just the identifier of an error, the identifier
is almost never used in XML markup.

In what way does the local name FOER0001 in the namespace
http://www.w3.org/2005/xqt-errors relate to markup or an XML vocabulary?

It is the error:

     FOAR0001, Division by zero.
     This error is raised whenever an attempt is made to divide by zero.

It might be raised when evaluating the XPath   "1 div 0" from java
where there is no XML to be seen.
