That only works with langagues that actually support namespaces.  That's 
true for real XHTML and other XML languages, but it isn't true for 
anything served as text/html (even if the document claims to be XHTML by 
using an XHTML DOCTYPE), like the vast majority of web pages.

Additionally, it doesn't work with QNames (i.e. attribute values with 
namespaces), as there is (currently) no attribute selector that supports 
them for the values.
