No, but we decided to go ahead anyway because you can always address
that by a) providing a binding for some random namespace to the prefix
you use in your XPath and then b) push it through a namespace-rename
step to change the random namespace to the XProc namespace.  Given how
rare a requirement that is, we thought it not worth an additional
language feature to address this.
