Yes -- you clearly solve the older problem of incompatibility with non-RDF
namespaces. However, you do not solve the newer problem recently raised that
the RDF syntax is not capable of representing the model. For example, it
cannot represent the statement:

    <urn:p> <urn:p/q/> <urn:p:asas>

This is a bit of a problem, if we expect the RDF syntax to accurately
represent the model in its entirety.

Could you share the issue with us so we can think it through?
