Something smells wrong here:

> If the Host Language uses XML Namespaces [XML-NAMES], the attributes
> in this specification should be incorporated in the namespace of the
> Host Language.

No existing host language does this.

XHTML+RDFa, HTML5+RDFa, SVG and Yahoo's DataRSS all use unnamespaced
attributes for RDFa. OpenDocument 1.2 is a bit of an exception, as it
places the RDFa attributes in the <http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml>
namespace, which not even XHTML does.
