Thanks for the review, Henri. :)

I've integrated all of your comments into the wiki[1]. I saw all of your
points as valid and needing to be addressed via spec language.

At a high-level, the idea is to address every technical issue.

RDFa does not depend on xmlns, so that is a non-issue (unless I'm
missing something).

RDFa does depend on xmlns:<prefix>, but only to the point where the RDFa
processor must be able to extract the prefix/value pair from the DOM in
some way. Would specifying the mechanism on how to extract it from an
HTML DOM as well as an XHTML DOM address the issue?

I've added your comment to the wiki[1], noting that the issue should be
addressed. We could provide implementation advice in an informative
section... would this address your concern? Or is your concern that
there is no way to implement this requirement?
