I think part of the reason was that the Parameters object can be created from
a Configuration object containing <parameter> elements.  The Configuration
reader ignores namespaces, and uses the QName for the configuration names.
Hense, <map:parameter> as a configuration element would have a name of
"map:parameter" as opposed to "parameter".

Since we directly manipulate the Parameters object now, the <map:parameter>
approach will work.  I just like using the shorter "parameter" name.
