SAX2: Namespace separators

I arbitrarily chose to default to the null separator for two reasons: 1. because RDF does it, and it's the only Recommendation that has anything to say about the specifics of concatenation; and 2. to stay out of any religious wars against which character should be used as the separator. The RDF concatenation does lead to nasty problems, as John suggests. I could live with [space], if everyone promises not to flame me (it's one character that's virtually guaranteed not to be allowed in XML names in any future version of the spec).
