ISSUE-121: CR Comment: clarification of default namespace


Raised by: Ben Adida
On product: RDFa

Florian Schmedding wants clarification of default namespace language [1]

section 7 says the RDFa default prefix mapping is
http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/vocab# and has to be used when the prefix but
not the colon is omitted in a CURIE. At the bottom of page 53 is then said
that "the mapping to use with the default prefix is the current default
mapping" which would be the value of @xmlns in scope and therefore normally
http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml (section 4.1).

According to that, in Test 63 the predicate would be
http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtmlnext rather than
http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/vocab#next (rel=":next"). Additionally, page 29
states that the prefix http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/vocab# should be used
only for values in @rel/@rev without prefix and colon. Please correct me if
I misunderstood this part.
