Yes, that's correct. I forget the detail, but I think it was to make
StructuredQName consistent with NodeInfo, and somewhere along the line
using consistent names enabled two classes to implement the same interface.

Namespace codes no longer exist, so allocateNamespaceCode() is obsolete.
Information about namespace bindings is now always passed in a
NamespaceBinding object. (There have been other changes designed to
reduce the dependency on the NamePool, which was a significant source of
contention for high-throughput sites. Hopefully this is much reduced in
9.4. In particular, on the Receiver interface names of elements and
attributes are now passed as a NodeName object, and type annotations as
a SchemaType object. This means that there is no longer any need to
allocate name codes for names that are used only in output documents.)

The class has moved to net.sf.saxon.tree.util.NamespaceIterator and now
returns NamespaceBinding objects.
Another way to get the in-scope namespaces of a node is
