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.
]]
http://www.w3.org/2004/01/rdxh/spec#grddlvocab

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?
