There's a subtle distinction between id= and explicit formation of a URIO 
from a namespace and local name.

In the former case, the URI formation rules are used (ala RFC2396, etc.), 
but in the latter case its simple concatenation.  That's what the W3C 
validator is doing, and that's what seems to be called for by the RDF 
syntax spec (e.g. section 2.14 ... I need to locate more details, but no 
time right now).
