Stéphane,

although this is a bit against the rules we have set up for the default profile, I believe the position of schema.org justifies it. I also agree with the 'schema' prefix.

I guess the right URI is http://schema.org/

Is there any objection in the group?

Thanks

Ivan

Implementors will most likely hard code this prefix binding in their implementations anyways, so it might as well be standardized.
