According to me there is no basis for applying namespaces
to attribute values. Attribute values are not affected by
the namespace specification.
See http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xml-names11-20060816/#ns-using,
which refers to http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/#NT-AttValue.

The only processing that is performed on attribute values
is the resolution of references.

As a consequence, I don't see how CSS could express rules
in terms of namespace-governed attribute values.

Werner.
