XDM erratum E004

http://www.w3.org/XML/2007/qt-errata/xpath-datamodel-errata.html#E004

makes it clear that an attribute node whose name is in a namespace must have a
prefix. This is true whether or not the attribute node is attached to an
element. Therefore a query processor must invent a prefix at the time the
attribute node is created, it cannot leave it until the attribute acquires a
parent (unless, of course, the user can't tell the difference).

Of course, it could have been done differently and perhaps even better, but
that's not the point.
