Okay, so this is my latest attempt:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
	xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1"
	xmlns:likn="http://likn.org/owl"
	xml:base="http://likn.org/rdf/">
	<rdf:Description rdf:about="becca">
		<dc:title>Becca</dc:title>
		<rdf:type rdf:resource="http://likn.org/owl#person" />
		<likn:eyeColor rdf:resource="brown" />
		<likn:eyeColor rdf:resource="green" />
	</rdf:Description>
</rdf:RDF>

My only issue with it is that I'd like to be able to say the same thing 
without any likn Qnames. Is there a way to make the following statement 
without Qnames?

"http://likn.org/becca has the property http://likn.org/eyeColor with 
the value http://likn.org/brown"

Without resorting to something like:
<rdf:Description>
	<rdf:subject rdf:resource="becca" />
	<rdf:predicate rdf:resource="eyeColor" />
	<rdf:object rdf:resource="brown" />
	<rdf:type 
rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#Statement" />
</rdf:Description>

I don't like how that graphs -- are reasoners even required to believe 
that assertion?
