Funny you mention that.  I've recently run into the same need with regard to
generating XSLT stylesheets.  I'd rather not rely on the hack of using a
namespace prefix that may or may not correspond to that used in what the
XSLT processor outputs.  The point of <xsl:namespace-alias> was to enable
the generation of stylesheets.  Yet it didn't go far enough.  How does one
generate namespace-aware match patterns, mode values, and template names?
As far as I can tell, this is not possible.

I second the motion that namespace-aware string functions be added for
attribute values and text content.

	I would like to see QName aware string functions in XSLT. Qualified
Names are becoming more common as attribute content, in fact XSLT uses them
	Perhaps this should be seen in the larger context of data type
awareness and XSchema alignment.
