I'd use that URL to point to the definition of the XHTML term in
question, so that:-

[[[
@prefix xhtmle: <http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml#elements.> .
@prefix htmldfn:
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40-971218/struct/text.html#edef-> .
@prefix rdfs: <http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#> .

xhtmle:acronym rdfs:isDefinedBy htmldfn:ACRONYM .
]]]

Doing it in that way in which I recently outlined has advantages other
any other "hack" system (e.g. in that the types are all grouped
properly). For example, you can use:-

   http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml#

as an RDF namespace alias for all XHTML types, and:-

   http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml#elements.

as the RDF namespace alias for all XHTML elements, and so on.
