/ ht@inf.ed.ac.uk (Henry S. Thompson) was heard to say:
| Oops, I forgot, another thing which needs to be added, namely that
| unprefixed values are always interpreted as being in no namespace. . .

<para><termdef xml:id="dt-QName">In the context of XProc, a
<firstterm>QName</firstterm> is almost always a QName in the
<glossterm>Namespaces in XML</glossterm> sense.
Note, however, that <tag>p:option</tag> and
<tag>p:parameter</tag> values can get their namespace declarations in
a non-standard way (with <tag>p:namespaces</tag>) and QNames that have
no prefix are always in no-namespace, irrespective of the default
