It seems even worse to me to overload QName to apply both places, since QNames also have a prefix property which makes no sense here.

(Rant: it seems even worse to have namespaces in XML expose prefixes at all, but that ship *long* since sailed.  At the least, yay for E4X making <f:x xmlns:f="g"/> == <g:x xmlns:g="g"/>.)
