OK, thank you for that update. Well, I was a aware ofre @prefix. But I 
thought that you still were interested in xmlns support in HTML5. So it 
seems that the change proposals w.r.t. to ISSUE-41 do not need to 
consider RDFa, then. Sorry, tried to pay the bill without the host - 
never a good idea ...
