About http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-css3-namespace-20060828/#css-qnames

The specification doesn't say anything about qnames if attributes values as it seems to be used intensively by XHTML 2.0, for example this test.

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2002/06/xhtml2/"
     <title>Some Document</title>
	 <style type="text/css">
	    @namespace dc "http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-namespace/";

     <cite property="dc:title" 
           href="urn:isbn:0060006994">Fix-it Duck</cite>

It seems that the CSS namespaces doesn't apply to values of attributes?
Should the CSS author rely on escaping to apply a rule?
	.dc\:title { }
