ISSUE-116: Last Call Comment: use CURIE prefix other than xmlns for future HTML compatibility

2.5 RDFa in HTML documents

This specification does not address using RDFa in HTML documents (only for XHTML
documents).  While most of the specification could also be applied to HTML
documents, the mapping of CURIE prefixes will have to be rewritten for HTML
documents (since there is no namespace concept in HTML).

This and the complexity problem mentioned in 2.4 make us wonder if the concept
of CURIEs should be modified to not use the “xmlns:[prefix]” attribute for
prefix mapping.  Have you considered alternatives that would allow a consistent
use of RDFa in HTML and XHTML documents?  From the perspective of accessibility,
consistency between HTML and XHTML documents should be a goal of the specification.
