I'm afraid I do not understand what the issue is to which I am 
expected to respond. The semantics document introduces the xsd:prefix 
with the following text (section 0.2):

"We will also make extensive use of the Qname prefixes rdf:, rdfs: 
and xsd: defined as follows:

Prefix rdf: namespace URI: http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#

Prefix rdfs: namespace URI: http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#

Prefix xsd: namespace URI: http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#

Since Qname syntax is not legal N-triples syntax, and in the 
interests of brevity and readability, we will use the convention 
whereby a Qname is used without surrounding angle brackets to 
indicate the corresponding uriref enclosed in angle brackets, eg the 

<ex:a> rdf:type rdfs:Property .

should be read as an abbreviation for the N-triples syntax

<ex:a> <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#type> 
<http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#Property> ."

Can someone (Jeremy?) tell me in what way this is misleading?
