The qname is also optional and related to the same "namespace-prefixes" 
feature to be true, meaning in most cases, you may only have namespace 
URI and local name.

Most of the code in AbstractTextSerializer is related to an old Xalan 
bug (may have been fixed now) which _required_ the qname to be present 
to correctly serialize.
