I'm sorry, I don't see the problem.  The QNames are equal if ns() and
name() both match.  The prefix is irrelevant.  This is what I suggested in
my definition of the equality operator above.

    if (qn1 == qn2) ...

just does the right thing.  If some application really wants to compare the
prefixed name, it can always write:

    if (qn1.prefixedName () == qn2.prefixedName ()) ...

I'm obviously missing something, since you and other knowledgable people
don't regard this as self evidently obvious -- can you explain the problem
to me, please?
