SAX2: Namespaces and syntax of compound names

i would actually prefer to have the option requesting that names be parsed to
interned symbols. symbols without uri are simply in a package either without a
name, or with a constant default name.
this mechanism also offers numerous advantages. for example, giving the
package more than one name, or constructing and using packages
programmatically while delaying binding to the uri. a consequence of which is
that it would be trivial to shifting the uri systematically for compiled applications...
