RDFa's namespace (vocabulary) != RDFa's initial context

The RDFa initial context contains prefixes for multiple vocabularies plus a
number of terms whereas RDF's vocabulary contains definitions like
rdfa:PrefixOrTermMapping etc. These are two different things and should be
kept separate as they will evolve separately. It would make no sense to
define, e.g., skosxl or void prefixes in RDFa's namespace.

Hope this clears things up
