FYI: Micah Dubinko on GRDDL for QNames in Content

To: "GRDDL Working Group" <public-grddl-wg@w3.org>
Message-ID: <1193155491.3661.3.camel@otherland>

Micah has an interesting suggestion for using GRDDL as a mechanism to
bind namespaces to prefixes without relying on embedding such a binding
in the source document.  This is mostly relevant for RDFa, but since the
suggested solution is GRDDL, I wanted to bring this to the attention of
the Working Group:

Could, for instance, the namespace name for Dublin Core metadata be
assigned to the prefix “dc:” in an external file, linked via
transformation to the document in question? Then it would be simpler,
from a producer or consumer viewpoint, to simply use names like
“dc:title” with no problems or ambiguity.
