The namespace draft allows PI targets, but not notations, to be
qualified with namespace prefixes. A notation declaration, however,
is the only standard way in which a PI target can be predeclared.
Thus, the following is not allowed:
<?xml:namespace ns='http://whoever.dom/whatever' prefix='ww'?>
<DOCTYPE foo [
<NOTATION ww:do-it SYSTEM 'http://whoever.dom/whatever/do-it'>
yet this seems entirely reasonable. What was the reasoning behind
forbidding qualified names in notation declarations?
