RDF-ISSUE-89 (at-prefix): Should Turtle allow SPARQL's PREFIX like @prefix? [RDF Turtle]

http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/track/issues/89

Raised by: Sandro Hawke
On product: RDF Turtle

The syntaxes of Turtle and SPARQL are very strongly aligned.   There's one glaring difference now, I think.  Turtle has people use "@prefix" to declare their namespace prefixes, but SPARQL uses "PREFIX".

Surely this is going to confuse and frustrate users.

PROPOSED: Turtle be defined to allow either @prefix or PREFIX, with PREFIX preferred and used in all the examples.
