I suggest either Dan or Harry sends this soon (like today)

To reply directly:
a) No, the content of  http://www.w3.org/2003/g/data-view are not part 
of the GRDDL recommendation?
b) We will review and correct the contents of 
http://www.w3.org/2003/g/data-view during the candidate recommendation 
phase (which we hope will be from May 1st to June 1st), after which it 
should be stable. We will update you when we have done this.
c) Applications can behave as if the file had an empty GRDDL result, 
except when they are explicitly asked for the GRDDL result of this 
resource. In the latter case, they should do a GET on the URI and apply 
the usually GRDDL mechanisms.

This is the force of the statement in the editor's draft:
The namespace document includes RDF data about the terms in the GRDDL 
Vocuabulary, but these RDF data do not include any triples whose 
predicate is grddl:profileTransformation.

since that is the only type of triple that one would normally have to 
look for.

Does this adequately address your concerns about the namespace document?
