At the most recent RDF Core meeting we discussed some new words I
suggested about this issue:
  
   1) unprefixed attributes have no meaning in RDF and must not be
     used (excepting backwards-compatible accepting of rdf namespace
     attributes such as about, id etc.)
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2001May/0035.html

and the above words were accepted.  This decision was recorded in
  Draft minutes of 2001-05-11 RDF Core WG teleconference
  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2001May/att-0060/01-2001-05-11.html#rdf-ns-prefix-confusion

Is this sufficient?
