            Bug ID: 29096
           Summary: [XP31] URIQualifiedName syntax: Q{}local and Q{}*
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Last Call drafts
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XPath 3.1
          Assignee: jonathan.robie@gmail.com
          Reporter: mike@saxonica.com

  Target Milestone: ---

Many readers will guess, no doubt correctly, that Q{}local represents a name in
no namespace, and that the NameTest Q{}* matches names in no namespace.

However, the spec doesn't actually say so, and we shouldn't leave readers to
guess. Using a zero-length string to represent the
namespace-that-dare-not-speak-its-name is a common convention, but by no means
