Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale:

I ended up doing a mixture of the proposals above.

If it's an element in the HTML, SVG, or MathML namespaces, then there's no
prefix, regardless of the DOM. Otherwise, I just let the qualified name through
and round-tripping will break.

If it's an attribute in the XML, XMLNS, or XLink namespaces, then there's the
canonical prefix (with an exception for xmlns:xmlns=""). If there's no
namespace, there's no prefix. Otherwise, I just let the qualified name through
and round-tripping will break.

I didn't do anything to stop duplicate attributes from being output, or to stop
namespace prefixes bound to non-canonical namespaces from stomping over the
canonical mapping's namespace, etc.
