Read it one more time. ;-)  I'm looking for getAttribute(String, String)
not a constructor Attribute(String, String).  I don't see a getAttribute(String,
String), so there shouldn't be a conflict.

Not sure if getAttribute() is that high of a performance concern, either.
 Could it be you were thinking of the constructor when you mentioned
that?  I don't see it normally being used in any tight loops.  In which
case my first suggestion of handling getAttribute("prefix:name") may
still be appropriate.
