It's been improved a lot for XPath 3 - this is one of the reasons the
spec is so much larger, that it has been made more precise.

If you're looking at the xpath stuff in xmllint, by the way, it could
really use an option to bind a URI name to a prefix... (I am too maxed
out to send a patch, I'm sorry - maybe in August)
