Of course. QNames in attributes are easily definable in any
application of XML that uses XML Schema datatypes, so this is
something that CSS should look out for. Using QNames in attribute
values is very useful where you want to create a decentralized
classing mechanism.

Bottom line: they're useful, they're validatable, and they're being
used... and yet CSS doesn't currently provide a selection mechansism
for them. I see this as more of an errata point than anything that
requires lengthy discussion.
