Triclops, 4Suite's RDF visualization engine, has the same capability.  You can 
specify namespace mappings (and you can have default mappings associated with 
your user).  Then the graph will use those prefixes.  Furthermore, of a 
resource has an rdfs:label, this is used.

And just to dispel a rumor I overheard: 4Suite *is* fully open source.  Apache 
license, to be precise.
