Hi Joern -- Firefox is not so picky so I'm not sure if this version has
been updated as you suggest.  There's now a namespace declaration on the
instance (and an extra one for good measure on the root document though
probably not needed there...).

Lacking any comments to the contrary, we'll include this in the updated
test suite zip file shortly.  Thanks, Charlie Wiecha

When activating the 'Valid Values' trigger our Validator (Xerces)
complains about the Node bound to QName as there's no namespace
defined for 'my:myelement' and therefore the prefix 'my' cannot be
resolved. The Node becomes invalid.

Declaring a namespace with that prefix fixes that problem in our
implementation. I think Xerces is right here as the QName validation
does not only test for lexical correctness of the QName but also
checks if there a namespace in scope for the given prefix.
