The namespaces spec (<URL:http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml-names/>) does.
MSXML implements XML+namespaces; there's no requirement that all XML
parsers do, but it's probably a good idea to at least follow the
syntactic restrictions, since colons in XML 1.0 names are reserved for
experimental use pending publication of the namespaces Recommendation,
which has since happened.
