Something I overlooked is that we also need the RDF namespace for the 
rdf:datatype attributes on EARL pointers.

Yes, that would be the naming convention described at

The task force uses TCDL (developed by the BenToWeb project) to avoid 
the long process of creating a language from scratch. Hosting TCDL at a 
W3C address would be interpreted by many as a kind of endorsement, and 
there has been some pressure to avoid the impression of endorsement. 
For a W3C version of TCDL, it would be necessary to find a working 
group who wants to add the work on such a language to its charter.
But regardless of whether there will be a W3C version, I always want to 
hear about things you don't like about TCDL.
