 * {@link AttributeMatcher} implementation that matches attributes based on their namespace URI and
 * local name. Parameters are defined as follows:
 * <dl>
 * <dt><code>namespaceURI</code>
 * <dd>The namespace URI of the attribute.
 * <dt><code>name</code>
 * <dd>The local name of the attribute.
 * <dt><code>value</code>
 * <dd>The attribute value.
 * <dt><code>prefix</code>
 * <dd>The prefix to be used when creating a new attribute or updating an existing one.
 * </dl>
 * If the namespace URI is the empty string, then this class will also match namespace unaware
 * attributes. Note that the class doesn't match namespace declarations (for which
 * {@link NamespaceDeclarationMatcher} can be used).

     * Constructor.
     * @param semantics
     *            Specifies the {@link Semantics} to be used by
     *            {@link #update(CoreAttribute, String, String)}.
     * @param matchNSUnawareAttributes
     *            Specifies if {@link CoreNSUnawareAttribute} instances can also be matched. Only
     *            applies to the case where <code>namespaceURI</code> is the empty string.
     * @param updatePrefix
     *            Specifies if the prefix of an existing attribute should be updated (based on the
     *            value of the <code>prefix</code> parameter. If this is <code>false</code>, then
     *            <code>prefix</code> is only used when creating new attributes and prefixes of
     *            existing attributes are preserved (i.e. only their value is updated).
