Reading [1] we should probably go for a namespace like:

 http://www.w3.org/2011/10/prov

We are not following the Pub-rules if we publish a first draft with
unapproved namespaces.


I guess we should use http://www.example.com/ for CrimeFile example,
etc (according to  RFC 2606) as they are not normative.


We will need to tell someone important to get the proper webserver
stuff set up - but I guess before we go to first public draft the
namespace should be sorted for the ontology.


PROV-DM says: [2]

  The PROV-DM namespace is http://www.w3.org/ns/prov-dm/ (TBC).


Any particular reason this is in /ns/ instead of the /2011/-style?
