This is a vexed question.  A quick look at your document suggest some
pretty good wording, e.g.

 "The prefix of a qualified name may be omitted to indicate that the
 name belongs to no namespace."

That's exactly right, and doesn't seem awkward.  Could you give some
examples of wording you're not so happy with?
