What are the current plans for the Namespace class? In particular, is it
going to be revised at some point so that prefixes are maintained as
well as URIs? I know I was initially strongly in the camp that this
wasn't necessary, but I'm afraid Simon convinced me otherwise. Namespace
prefixes in attribute values are just too common. :-(

I don't need this functionality immediately, and if it is a goal to
maintain prefixes then I have a few ideas about how to fix the Namespace
class to do that; but I do need to know what to tell my audience at
XMLDevCon next week.
