Agreed, that is also in line with how the empty namespace is handled
in the qualified form.

However, the current implementation in Jackrabbit (and the JCR 2.0 RI
candidate) follows the exact wording of the spec and parses "{}foo" to
("", "foo").

I filed an issue about this to the JSR 283 expert group, though I'm
not sure if we still have time to change the spec before it's final.

If this isn't changed, then names like ("", "{}foo") can not be used
in prefixed form, and should always be expressed in the expanded form
