Hi Ken,

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,

What would be the regex to match QNames? can prefixes also have "-" and digits, etc?

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.
