Let's have properties with Qnames a:p1 and b:p1, where
xmlns:a="http://www.foo.com/ns#"
xmlns:b="http://www.Foo.com/ns#"
According to [NAMESPACES], those namespaces are not identical as they are not exactly the same character-for-character, so the a:p1 and b:p1 come from different namespace and are different.
But the properties are represented by resources and they have URIs:
http://www.foo.com/ns#p1 and http://www.Foo.com/ns#p1.
According to [URI], those URIs are equivalent.
Considering this, are the following (s,p,o) triples equivalent RDF statements or
not?
(r, a:p1, v)
(r, b:p1, v)
