well, there is nothing to stop you declaring two prefixes (or the default and
one) for the same namespace - it's just a bit more hassle for anyone foolish
enough to read source code :-)

I doubt it. Unless you mean all the voabularies that some person knows really
well...

seriously, there are lists of vocabularies around, but it is known that a lot
of vocabularies are creaeted by people without ever being so much as a schema
labelling terms in the vocabulary - let alone listed anywhere.

(annd I think this list still welcomes this kind of question...)
