Namespace codes no longer exist, so allocateNamespaceCode() is
obsolete.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.)

getURIFromNamespaceCode(), getNamespaceCode(), or

The class has moved to net.sf.saxon.tree.util.NamespaceIterator and
