Perhaps it would be useful to clarify the language in the spec; in
particular, say that last part explicitly.

The phrase "current default mapping" seems to appear only once,
whereas the phrase "'default prefix' mapping" is used twice in
the second paragraph of section 7.

It would reduce confusion to add

    "...  in RDFa the 'default prefix' mapping is http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/vocab#.
  This specification does not provide a mechanism to change the default
  prefix mapping."

and to simply drop the bullet

  "* the mapping to use with the default prefix is the current default mapping;"
