I'm a little confused here, perhaps someone can help. In M&S it appears that
<rdf:RDF> is intended to delimit the stuff that will be part of an RDF
model, though is optional - this it seems a bit loose. Does RDF signify an
rdf container? i.e. what exactly is RDF in the rdf namespace?

In addition, probably I'm forgetting something about NSs/DOM here, but

How does this :
<rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" ...>

Compare to this :
<RDF xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" ...>

This has come up because I've been playing around with MSXML, and I haven't
(yet) found a way of generating a doc root that will serialise as <foo:bar>

I've had a good look around, but it's only added to my own
rdf-ns-prefix-confusion ;-)
