This is a bit of a bike shedding, but…I am not sure whether it is good
 of bringing in a new namespace for these three. Yes, I know, reuse 
namespaces if necessary, it does not count for the JSON-LD, etc, etc, 
but nevertheless, I am not 100% sure it is worth brining in a new one 
to the Turtle. I have a slight (emphasis: slight) preference to have 
these three values duplicated in our own namespace.
