Ha, good point. This falls into the category of an illegal namespace  
declaration, which in this case means the prefix is unbound, the Curie  
illegal, and no triple created. This same kind of reasoning applies,  
in my opinion, to:

   * "Non-NCName xmlns prefix"
   * "Colon in prefix"
   * "Safe CURIE containing square brackets"
