Thanks. I _eventually_ figured that out, but was hoping to get the
documentation changed to include another comment for how to determine
"xxx"
in where it is mentioned at
http://www.w3.org/wiki/TaskForces/CommunityProjects/LinkingOpenData/DataSets/CKANmetainformation
(is this document still alive?)

ooh! Is this available as code or a service? That's exactly what we
need to do (and would rather NOT reinvent).

Sounds reasonable. Again, I'd hope that Those Who Can update
http://www.w3.org/wiki/TaskForces/CommunityProjects/LinkingOpenData/DataSets/CKANmetainformation
to note that prefix.cc is/could be used to decipher the prefix in format-xxx.
