aha, that sounds like an interesting approach, to enable that per attribute.
Not sure whether it should really be different for, e.g. @rel and @rev, and
whether one would want keywords on @about and @resource, but, well, why not?
Let's see how people use it.  (What is @graph BTW?)

I have always thought that a name_space_ is something that contains a lot of
localnames.  So this is indeed a creative (ab)use of "namespaces" that only
contain a single entity.  I wouldn't say it is illegal, though, it's
definitely an interesting and elegant hack.

Cheers,

Christoph
