> Does that formulation affect testing expressions against attribute names?

No. That would have been clearer if I had said "is null" in both places,
instead of "is null" in one place and "has no namespace URI" in the other. So
this is better wording:

"In XPath 1.0, if a NameTest has no prefix, then the namespace URI is null. In
the context of document.evaluate(), HTML5 specifies a different default element
namespace: if a NameTest has no prefix and the principle node type of the
NameTest is element, the namespace URI is http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml; if a
NameTest has no prefix and the principle node type of the NameTest is not
element, the namespace URI is null."
