At the 12 November meeting, the group agreed that the RDFa Syntax 
Specification reserves the prefix of '_', but that it could be clearer 
about this.  We agreed to put a clarification in the Errata.  I propose 
the following text:

In sections 5.4.5 and 7 the specification indicates that the prefix '_' 
is reserved and is used to create / reference blank nodes (bnodes).  
Because this prefix is reserved, authors SHOULD NOT declare a mapping 
for the prefix '_' and conforming processors MUST NOT incorporate such a 
prefix mapping into the 'list of URI mappings' as defined in section 5.5.
