you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue

Status: Partially Accepted

Change Description: 

A number of issues have been added to address this concern in the new RDFa WG:

ISSUE-1: http://www.w3.org/2010/02/rdfa/track/issues/1
ISSUE-11: http://www.w3.org/2010/02/rdfa/track/issues/11
ISSUE-14: http://www.w3.org/2010/02/rdfa/track/issues/14

Based on how each of these issues are resolved in the RDFa WG, there will
almost certainly be a number of spec changes to RDFa Core 1.1, which would
subsequently affect HTML5+RDFa. One of these spec changes would allow
prefix-less markup, but with a complete follow-your-nose story. In other words,
it would be acceptable both to the die-hard RDF community and the die-hard
no-xmlns community.


This bug is being marked as FIXED, because it has been escalated to an ISSUE in
RDFa WG. It's not necessarily resolved yet. We're attempting to partially
resolve this bug by FPWD for RDFa 1.1 Core, which will happen in April 2010. 

We probably should not keep this bug as OPEN, as it seems as if the information
is duplicated between this bug and the RDFa WG issue tracker. My understanding
is that items should either be tracked here, or in the ISSUE tracker, but not

I suggest that the submitter of this bug resolve the bug as CLOSED since it has
been escalated to an ISSUE item in the RDFa WG tracker.
