I do have an Idea on way to resolve the xmlns: problems in HTML5 the 
best way I think is to just give you all an example.

Based on example found in section 5.1.2  
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#typed-items

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html xmlns:prefix="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/prefix#">
    <head>
     <meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8" />
        <title>...</title>
    </head>
<body>
<section prefix:pet="http://example.com/animal#"
             prefix:animal="http://example.org/"
             typeof="pet:cat animal:feline">
<h2 property="pet:name">Hedral</h2>
 <p property="pet:desc">
    Hedral is a <span property="animal:gender">male</span> <span 
property="animal:title">american domestic shorthair</span>,
    with a fluffy <span prop="property:color">black</span> fur with  
<span property="property:color">white</span> paws and belly.
 </p>
<img property="pet:photo animal:img" src="hedral.jpeg" alt="an american 
domestic shorthair cat" title="My Cat Hedral" />
</section>
</body>
</html>

Is there anything wrong with using xmlns: in the way I have proposed 
above?  as I am unsure of what the Issues may be?, I think structure an 
content are more clearly defined....? also xmlns is not depreciated in 
html5 so really what's the cost?

Thanks.
