I wonder whether they tried to process it using an RDF tool, because
it doesn't do what it looks like. DBpedia uses the prefix
http://dbpedia.org/resource/ for URIs, and it is not clear that
DBpedia resources actually map directly to classes anyway.

I think you need to go over some examples of how to use rdf:about,
rdf:resource, and rdf:datatype in RDF/XML before you worry about the
meaning of what you are trying to write. Maybe it would be simpler for
you to start writing out NTriples where you see each of the triples
without the XML abstraction.

The following line is the main syntax problem

<rdf:type rdf:datatype="http://dbpedia.org/page/The_commons" />

as it should be

<rdf:type rdf:resource="http://dbpedia.org/resource/The_commons" />

or if they wanted to match the rest of the document's style

<The_commons xmlns="http://dbpedia.org/resource/" />

Cheers,

Peter
