If I understand the spec correctly, if you load a XML/RDF document with
weird namespaces names such as http://foo.com/b or http://foo.com#b in a
RDF parser and serialise the model back into XML/RDF, in addition to the
common "roundtrip" issues, the result could use different namespace and
local names than the original document! (the namespace name would be
http://foo.com/ or http://foo.com# and a "b" would have been prefixed to
the local names!).
