is a prefix without a namespace legal?

legal prefix
Hello,

splitting a name into localname and prefix seems to cause several
compatibility problems in SAX and DOM.
My question is: Is splitting the name legal at all if no valid namespace
is given?

If the nsprefix would be extracted only when a namespace is set, the
problem

{'', '', 'href'} != {'', 'html', 'href'} 

would not exist since the prefix would not be stripped off in that case.

{'', '', 'href'} != {'', '', 'html:href'}

best regards

Stefan
