Jim,

QNames are the way that the working group, and indeed the W3C, handle having
data that comes from differing sources. The working group is not willing to
change course at this time.

> Please do not use QNames in attribute context, this removes the ability to 
> simply process XHTML 2 documents as generic XML documents with XSLT, as any 
> XHTML processor needs to be able to understand the semantics of the role 
> element to ensure that the QName references are expanded correctly.
> 
> Please change the role attribute to not suffer this problem
> 
> roleNS and roleLocalName attributes will be an acceptable way to do this
