As a member of the RDF Core working group, and not speaking for it, I
can't see any of the above RDF/XML syntax that is going to be removed
from the syntax, or illegal as you put it.

However, the interpretation of the syntax may change - especially
for rdf:value, since that was rather vaguely defined (by example only) in
the RDF Model & Syntax document.
