-999

In the grand scheme of things, this is a non-problem.  Why bother
remembering namespace URIs in the first place?  That's what we have editors
for; just write a macro.  If you use emacs, here is a yasnippet:

# -*- mode: snippet -*-
# name : rdfns
# key: rdfns
# --
xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"

With this just type "rdfns<tab>".
