I think forcing people to use this "OMNamespace" thing is bad bad bad. 
Why do I care about a prefix/uri mapping if what I'm looking for is a 
particular attribute namespace/localName pair?  I really think they can 
handle methods with two Strings (no one has complained about that in 
Axis 1.X that I know of).
