[XML-SIG] namespace headache

It is a reasonable convention, built *on top of* the XML namespaces
specification, to treat "href" on an "html:a" element as equivalent to
"html:href". You could imagine this as another layer termed "Simplified
Attribute-Inherited Namespaces". But such a document doesn't
exist...some particular XML vocabularies just "work that way."

It's difficult to extract sense from strings, but they're the only
communication coin we can count on.
