I think requesting that HTML5 be "fix[ed]" mischaracterizes the problem. It
*might* be that the HTML5 side needs *changing* in order to paper over the
problem RDF-in-XHTML TF caused by using the xmlns syntax while fully intending
RDFa to be deployed in text/html.

When xmlns="foo" is parsed on an HTML element in text/html, it is an attribute
with local name xmlns in no namespace. Mapping this into a namespace
declaration would substantially alter the nature of the attribute in the
infoset, so while such mapping might be desirable from the RDFa point of view,
it clearly wouldn't be a "fix" or be "correct" from the point of view of
retaining the meaning of the DOM as converted into an Infoset.
