The spec is weak on this point. given, for example, <a xmlns="uri1" xmlns:b="uri1" c="d" b:c="e"/> <!-- ... --> <x xmlns="uri1" xmlns:b="uri1" c="d" b:c="e"/> The two unqualified 'c' attributes could, given the assertion, that they both "have a null namespaceUri", be misconstrued as be equal. It would depend on how the implementation construes a "null namespaceUri". Or is it that the "names" are, in fact equal, but their binding spaces are disjoint. The spec leaves this matter unclear. It would appear that SAX2 stands to become the defacto spec on this matter.
