You have to look into the Namespaces in XML spec for that, see:
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml-names/#Conformance

7. Conformance of documents
[...]
It follows that in a namespace-well-formed document:
* No entity names, processing instruction targets, or notation names contain
any colons.

This spec also defines the NCName EBNF rule that replaces the original Name
rule for PI Targets from the XML spec.
