To echo your words, I would not go there.

Fiddle as little as possible.

I would oppose a new namespace. Putting in either rif or OWL would be  
arbitrary (though I wouldn't, myself, mind the OWL one :)).

As you pointed out, putting it in XSD is a non-starter.

Let the long international nightmare end! :)
