Or alternatively, a namespace processor can be instructed to prepend
"data:," to the actual namespace string prior to processing it and then
strip the first 6 chars when returning it. How would this change the current
behavior of namespace aware XML parsers? Not at all.

This is no different than using literal comparison in actual real world
behavior ... it that the crux of a strawman argument?
