Section 6.2.2: References to schema components across namespaces

The comments in the example are the only place that I have found that
indicate how unqualified QName references are to be resolved.   From a
usability standpoint, it would be much preferable to that an unqualified
name be first attempted to be located within the target namespace then with
the datatypes (or schema namespace).  This, of course, would be a more
complex resolution than would be used for a unqualified tagname but seems to
be consistent with previous usage.

If unqualified names are strictly going to be resolved this way, an explicit
statement should be made prominently in both Primer and Part 1.
