an issue with prefix-less curies (also comment on the syntax document)

No, I do not want to go into the core discussion:-), this is something

I had a chat with TimBL this afternoon on RDFa and he made me realize
something. Say we have the rel="next" somewhere. This is one of the
reserved properties, so I think we all agree that the RDFa processor
would generate the xhtml:next property in the RDF graph. Some small
issues with that, though

- the current syntax document defines the xhtml namespace as:


if the simple CURIE rules are used, that means that the CURIE above will
expand to


which is certainly not what we want. So what namespace should be used?
At the moment, if I type in


in my browser, it seems to redirect to


is this the namespace we should use? Or is it



- In both cases we get a number of URI-s for the predefined XHTML @rel
values. Either




In a nice world both URI-s should be dereferencable... The second one
does, in the sense that it will return something (but the #next will be
forgotten), whereas the first one will yield a 404....:-(

Nothing serious here, but we should probably decide what the final URI-s
should be for the predefined @rel/@property values, set up a minimal
infrastructure to make those URIs dereferencable and set the namespace
