No its not illegal, its perfectly valid according to the spec.
Just nonsensical (at least to me). 

The discussion is relating to the point of whether the 
QNames of the following QNames should compare equal in the Java:

{"p1", "first", "urn:person:000-000-000"}
{"p2", "first", "urn:person:000-000-000"}

If you've read the spec, then the answer seems yes. The 
debate is still open as to what the 'expected' behaviour 
might be in an == or equals() operation.

Thats legal too.
