+1. Not easy to read, but I guess it cannot be simplified.

Sorry, I've totally missed it. My suggestion is to move it from the end 
of the document (i.e., where LODE usually puts it) to the beginning, 
where it is more visible.

BTW, I wonder whether there's a kind of W3C template for namespace / 
vocabulary documents.

No strong objections from my side.
