Well, yes, the declaration for the prefix xh11

Ah. Hm. Well...:-(

In fact, you have carefully avoided the _usage_ of the xh11 prefix in
the examples. I could argue that then it is then unnecessary to list it
at the beginning of the section. _However_ if, in later editions, we
want to add an example that ends up with an RDF code using xh11, well,
then the namespace in the RDF result should be the '#' (or '/',
depending of what we decide) version...

As I said: because it is not used at the moment, the simplest is to
remove it:-)

Yes, it is outside of our scope....
