ISSUE-36 (Default vocab specification): Should Profile documents allow the specification of a default vocabulary? [RDFa 1.1 Core]

http://www.w3.org/2010/02/rdfa/track/issues/36

Raised by: Manu Sporny
On product: RDFa 1.1 Core

Markus proposed that Profile documents should allow the creation of a default vocabulary:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdfa-wg/2010May/0041.html

This has a number of implications:

1. How does one declare a default vocabulary via the profile document?
2. How does the declaration affect the @vocab attribute, would it override it and if so, in what order?
3. How does the declaration affect the CURIEs like ":next"?

The biggest question is the value of this feature? What is the use case that we are attempting to support? Does this overly-complicate RDFa without much payback?
