The above warnings are because the ID and about attributes do not have
a namespace prefix (e.g. rdf:ID and rdf:about). Although the M&S spec
does not mandate such a prefix, the RDF Core Working Group is chartered 
to clarify the M&S spec and they have addressed this issue and they
indend to change the syntax so that all attributes must have a namespace
prefix.  See the following for more information:
