Hi,

Would it be possible to add some sort of prefix independent namespace support to
selectors? This would allow querySelector/querySelectorsAll (which don't support
prefixes) to handle namespaced content.

Perhaps something like:

  url("http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace")|tag

or:

  namespace("http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace")|tag

or:

  ns("http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace")|tag

Background:
