I think we shouldn't use the qualified name for xlink:href and stuff. Instead
we should hard-code the xlink prefix to the serializer and emit "xlink:"
followed by the localName for attributes in the XLink namespace.

Likewise, I think elements should serialize using the localName even if someone
has managed to inject a prefix into the DOM.

Rationale on both counts: Parseability using the HTML parsing algorithm.
