Then how does this sound for a solution:

1. Triples are not generated for any non-prefixed value in
   @rel/@rev/@property that are not defined in the
   http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/vocab# namespace.

2. The RDFa syntax document should _not_ list the allowed property
   values for @rel/@rev and instead must refer to the
   http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/vocab# URL (or XHTML 2 document) to
   reference the "automatically namespaced predicate" values.

3. Syntax Document, Section 5.3, Step #4 (addition):
   The http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/vocab# namespace is automatically
   applied to each predicate that is non-prefixed and exists in the
   http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/vocab# namespace.

Does that address everyone's concerns?
