It was in reference to your comment about existing APIs. What I wanted
to make clear is that even though "" migth seem to match "" then the
(false) conclusion should not be drawn that two unqualified elements
with no namespace "matches" in the sense that they can be known to be
the same elements.

OK, I now understand the point. To be honest though I think the same applies
to qualified elements in certain cases. Context is everything!
