XPath 1.0 section 2.3:

A node test that is a QName is true if and only if the type of the node (see
[5 Data Model]) is the principal node type and has an expanded-name equal to
the expanded-name specified by the QName. 

section 5:

an expanded-name... is a pair consisting of a local part and a namespace URI
