xml:base does not affect the links in @href in XHTML1.1, and browsers
behave accordingly (they ignore xml:base), so we can't override that
with RDFa. We certainly can't say that xml:base affects @about but
somehow not @href.

Since the @rel situation makes it too complicated to accept prefix-less
values, we probably shouldn't take them into account in XHTML1.1+RDFa.
