This bug report's description is:

"The use of prefixes that can be bound to arbitrary strings then combined with
other strings to form a third set of strings is IMHO too complicated for a
technology intended for broad Web deployment (e.g. in text/html)."

Short of not using prefixes that can be bound to arbitrary strings then
combined with other strings to form a third set of strings, I can't see any way
to resolve this bug.

Therefore if you are not proposing not using prefixes that can be bound to
arbitrary strings then combined with other strings to form a third set of
strings, then it is my belief that you are rejecting the bug, not partially
accepting it.

I am, however, always open to novel ideas, so if there is some way to resolve
this bug while still using prefixes that can be bound to arbitrary strings then
combined with other strings to form a third set of strings, e.g. by making the
use of such mechanisms trivially simple and usable in a technology intended for
broad Web deployment such as text/html, then that would also satisfy this bug.
So far I am not aware of any proposal to do this.
