Location in reviewed document:
Sec. 6.1.1 [http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-css3-selectors-20051215/#typenmsp]

In 6.1.1, it should be made clear that the styling language (e.g. CSS) must provide a prefix binding mechanism. It is also unclear what effect, if any, namespace declarations in the document being styled have on prefixes used in the stylesheet.
