Maybe this was one of the intended use of the rdf:aboutEachPrefix.
A kind of (with proper ontologies... expressing trusts about
information)
<rdf:Description aboutEachPrefix="#"
    xmlns:s1="http://description.org/...1"
    xmlns:s2="http://description.org/...2">
    <s1:contextFor rdf:resource="http://la-bas/"/>
    <s2:context rdf:resource="http://ici/"/>
</rdf:Description>

I view the RDF element as a transport unit (between agents...). Don't
we all use model-like containers for also anyother classification and
not only transport. Using <RDF> is very strict.
