Very good article.  Does this mean xml:lang will disappear from the RDF
specs?  Of course the RDF specs could also state that

	<name xml:lang=fi>Ora Lassila</name>

should be interpreted as if it states

	  <lang:fi>Ora Lassila</lang:fi>

provided an official way to bind the lang namespace!  Leaves us with
the inheritance property of xml:lang.
