           Summary: Use of prefixes is too complicated for a Web technology

The use of prefixes that can be bound to arbitrary strings then combined with
other strings to form a third set of string is IMHO too complicated for a
technology intended for broad Web deployment (e.g. in text/html).

I sent comments to this effect to the list:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-in-xhtml-tf/2009Aug/0035.html

HTML5+RDFa uses such a model (layered on top of the "xmlns" attributes
currently, though it doesn't matter exactly what the prefix declaration
attribute is).

I think this should be a blocker issue for any HTMLWG deliverable.
