  Stricto sensu, that cannot be a QName for real, as this is in
content.  The best we could have is a *lexical* QName.  In the
above case, we just say its URI part is looked up first in
@new-namespace if any, or in the in-scope bindings.

  I probably missed something, but I am not sure where the
problem is with this approach.
