I note that the Namespaces in XML 1.1 PR Draft introduces the term 
"expanded name" for what I take to be the same purpose [1].  FWIW, the 
SOAP Adjuncts spec did its best to anticipate this usage in at least one 
place.  Might it make sense to adopt the term "expanded name" across the 
board to refer to {uri,local_name}?
