This looks quite good. The XML character classes are quite useful here. I do still wonder about the case where you would have a digit or dash after the colon, implying that the local-name would not start with a name-start character. Is that case covered also?
Thank you, ac

matches($str,'^\i\c*$') and matches($str,'^([^:]+:)?[^:]+$')
"starts with a name-start character, followed only by name characters until the end, and at most one colon"
I hope this helps.
