I wonder why there is no KindTest for namepace nodes.  In
particular, we can't write something like:

if ( $arg instance of namespace() ) ...

Of course, as this is the only kind of node that doesn't
have a KindTest, it is possible to rewrite it as:

if ( $arg instance of namespace() ) ...

   if ( $item instance of node()
          and not($item instance of attribute()
                    or $item instance of comment()
                    or $item instance of document-node()
                    or $item instance of element()
                    or $item instance of processing-instruction()
                    or $item instance of text() ) ) ...

Hi Florent,

A more compact expression giving the same result is:

$item intersect $item/../namespace::*
