It is unclear what an RDF parser is supposed to do when it encounters a
property without a namespace attached. In fact the spec says:

    It is recommended that property names always be qualified with a
    namespace prefix to unambiguously connect the property definition with
    the corresponding schema.

Now this could be read to mean something else, but it could also be
interpreted as stating that non-namespaced properties are legal (but not
recommended).

Another for the issues list?
