There is also the possibility that there will be a SAX feature to ask the XMLReader to place all unprefixed attribute names into the parent element's Namespace at user option (the default will be to leave them distinct). > b) The 'uri' argument to getType and getValue must be empty for them > to succeed if getRawName returns a string without a colon; By default, yes, though see above for the possibility of a feature that could invoke a different behaviour. > c) An exception should be thrown if an element or attribute name is > encountered with a prefix for which no declaration is in scope. Well, an error callback, at least. SAX uses callbacks and lets the app decide whether to throw an exception or continue processing (on the understanding that the information is no longer usable except for error reporting).
