Yes, I have intentionally removed this part. I'm not aware of any XPath
implementation that is compatible of what is defined in HTML5 spec,
might be some browsers support this in DOM Level 3 XPath API. But
browsers will be rare base of implementation.

Prefixed XPath will work in all implementations.
If someone really do not want use prefixes he can use CSS selectors or
we can introduce default XPath namespace similar to one in XSLT 2.0.
