I agree it would be nice, even if it's yet another rule to process 
QNames-in-content (but then XSLT and XML Schema have different ones so 
it doesn't matter). I couldn't find that specified anywhere, unless 
that's what the deeply pythic "SVG 1.2 follows the rules defined in DOM 
Level 3 (namespaces are specified as 'namespace-prefix:event-name')" is 
trying to say.

This needs be added as another Tiny LC issue.
