Currently, create a Namespace instance that maps a bogus prefix to the URI

    getAttribute(localName, Namespace.getNamespace("bogus", "someuri"));

but since you definitely not a newbie to XML and if this is causing you
confusion, then maybe we should consider adding a getAttribute(localName, URI)
for 1.1.
