I added prose in core 1.3.2, and also added a definition of "XML namespace" 
to the glossary, to try to explain away the "SAML namespace" vs. "XML 
namespace" distinction, but it's pretty awkward and confusing.  I commented 
on this back around F2F #2 at least, and would still love to change this 
name (and also ActionNamespace), but had given up until emboldened by 
Scott's recent comments. :-)

AttributeNameQualifier isn't too bad, but ActionValueQualifier doesn't work 
quite as well.  AttributeNameSet and ActionValueSet?
