Yeah, that was far too brief.

On the first bit: issue warnings if rdf / rdfs / owl / foaf / dc (!!?)
aren't assigned to the usual uris. Catch some basic problems.

On the second: Unify some popular (and non-overlapping) namespaces into
one namespace. Maybe parsers will remap (..fill in details..):

@prefix : <http://example.com/uber#> .
_:me :name "Damian Steer" ; :mbox <mailto:...> .
<http://example.com/foo> :contributor _:me .

could become:

@prefix foaf: <http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/> .
@prefix dct: <http://purl.org/dc/terms/> .
_:me foaf:name "Damian Steer" ; foaf:mbox <mailto:...> .
<http://example.com/foo> dct:contributor _:me .

I think Dan Brickley suggested something like this (?).

There were other suggestions. I think the general feeling was 'let's
make namespaces easier'.
