Right, I get it.  The idea is, for the case where qualified names are
given in attribute *values* (or I imagine, element content), the
prefix map (or at least a qualified-name expansion function) needs to be 
available to application programmers - which should not be an issue
for implementors since the machinery has to be there anyhow. -T.
