Possible new RDF test "<br/>" in RDF/XML exc-canonicalizing to "<br></br>"

Martin Duerst suggests that we add an exc-C14n test that shows
"<br/>" in RDF/XML exc-canonicalizing to "<br></br>"  in the graph.

  [[I think it would be good to add an example like this
   just to document how RDF/XML syntax, lexical value, and so on,
  are related, and in particular, that they are not exactly the same.]]
 -- http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2003Aug/0045.html

This has no consequences on any document but justs adds another exc-C14n
test.  Any implementation that already does exc-C14n or C14n will
already do this.  We happen to have not tested it our existing tests.

i.e. a new test for rdfms-literal-is-xml-structure - test 006

Option 1

input rdfms-literal-is-xml-structure/test006.rdf

<rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
          xmlns:eg="http://example.org/">
  <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://example.org/foo">
    <eg:bar rdf:parseType="Literal"><br/></eg:bar>
  </rdf:Description>
</rdf:RDF>

outputrdfms-literal-is-xml-structure/test006.rdf

<http://example.org/foo> <http://example.org/bar> "<br></br>"^^<http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#XMLLiteral> .

Option 2

The <br> element above remains without a namesapce.  If we did add one
it would likely be the html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" like this:

input rdfms-literal-is-xml-structure/test006.rdf

<rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
          xmlns:eg="http://example.org/">
  <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://example.org/foo">
    <eg:bar rdf:parseType="Literal" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><br/></eg:bar>
  </rdf:Description>
</rdf:RDF>

outputrdfms-literal-is-xml-structure/test006.rdf
  <http://example.org/foo> <http://example.org/bar> "<br xmlns=\"http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml\"></br>"^^<http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#XMLLiteral> .
