ISSUE-126 (HTML5+RDFa conformance): Can use of xmlns: be reported as an error for HTML5+RDFa 1.1? [RDFa 1.1 in HTML5]

http://www.w3.org/2010/02/rdfa/track/issues/126

Raised by: Manu Sporny
On product: RDFa 1.1 in HTML5

This issue was raised by Michael(tm) Smith:

He was working on the new validator code for W3C and said that getting xmlns: support into the HTML5 validator was going to be a fairly large undertaking. Additionally, we're the only ones that override the HTML5 spec to add xmlns: support, even though we have deprecated it's usage. Mike would like to see the following text:

"Conformance checkers must accept attribute names that have a case insensitive prefix matching "xmlns:" as conforming. Conformance checkers should generate warnings noting that the use of xmlns: is deprecated."

to this (for HTML5+RDFa):

"Conformance checkers may report the use of xmlns: as an error."
