Yup. Now that I think about this, this is probably a really good idea.
When the namespace gets parsed by the XML parser we'd end up with:


So we'll have to remove a / character.


Where we can simply iterate over the name after removing the URL part
and replace / with :.

If no one else objects. I'll see if I can't get this implemented this

It'd be really helpful to me if someone else with more test suite kungfu
than me would write a test for this. We can drop it in as XFAIL for the
time being.
