old NCName used in CURIE syntax by design?

The production
  prefix      :=   NCName

in the curie syntax section
  http://www.w3.org/TR/rdfa-syntax/#s_curies

goes to the Jan 1999 spec
  http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-xml-names-19990114/#NT-NCName

Is that by design? It would seem so, as the references
section is quite explicit:

[XMLNS]
        "Namespaces in XML", W3C Recommendation, T. Bray et al., eds.,
        14 January 1999.

Let's see...

The status of the 26 November 2008 edition of the XML spec says
"erratum [E09] relaxes the restrictions on element and attribute names"
        http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-xml-20081126/ 
        http://www.w3.org/TR/xml/

Looks like RDFa went to REC in Oct 2008, just before then.

Ugh.
