Would you please elaborate? He gave an example in RDF/XML:

<rdf:Description rdf:about="aaa">
   <eg:prop xsd:integer="10" />
</rdf:Description>

How is that not compatible with existing XML usage?

Just to fill out the details, here's the
complete RDF/xml document implicit around
the example Jeremy gave, including namespace
declarations etc.:

<rdf:RDF
    xmlns:eg="http://example/vocab#"
    xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
    xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#">

    <rdf:Description rdf:about="aaa">
        <eg:prop xsd:integer="10"/>
    </rdf:Description>
</rdf:RDF>
