And I think that's good guidance for anyone developing RDFa in XHTML 
today.  I will suggest to Steven and Ben that the Tutorial and Primer be 
updated to suggest this as a best practice.  But the truth is that 
people COULD use a mixed case prefix name in an XHTML+RDFa document 
today and it would work fine.  And an RDFa processor would recognize 
that the content it was extracting from was XHTML and would use an XML 
parser and it would be fine.  I have updated my processor to do this 
already.  Works great!
