Yes, as I understand it this is a predecessor of schema.org. The root of the problem with is that schema.org did (does?) not publish a RDF version and documentation for RDFa usage of their schema. Therefore, there is some confusion about namespaces for RDFa annotations.

I would also propose them to add RDFa examples to their documentation for all classes...
