Can I endorse the WG's decision here:  as an XML parser writer, I've
always used the equivalent of partitioned names as a matter of
internal declaration management hygiene.  The necessity of catering in
the API for the occasional use of an attribute name WITHOUT its associated
element type name is a real pain.
