You're correct.  <!ELEMENT> and <!ATTLIST> declarations deal with element
and attribute names at the purely lexical level and treat QNames as
literal strings.  Additionally, xmlns-style attributes must be declared on
all elements that can take them (usually by restricting them to certain
places and declaring them with #FIXED defaults).
