  I can't speak about what Norm has meant, but in your above
instruction, the processor does not know which prefix to bind to the
namespace URI.  If you make new-name value a lexical QName, the
processor have all the three pieces: the prefix, the namespace URI and
the local name.

  I think this is exactly the same context than with xsl:element's
@name and @namespace <http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt20/#xsl-element>.
