It's meant to be positive - 
http://rdfa.digitalbazaar.com/test-suite/xhtml-manifest.rdf says 
expectedResults is true.

http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-names/ says:

   "All other prefixes beginning with the three-letter sequence x, m, l, 
in any case combination, are reserved. This means that:
    * users SHOULD NOT use them except as defined by later specifications
    * processors MUST NOT treat them as fatal errors."

So the test case XML document is violating the 'should', but XML 
processors (and presumably RDFa processors) must treat it exactly like 
any other normal prefix.
