Namespaced RDFa attributes make RDFa more compatible with math markup

Dear all,

I recall that in the math markup community there have been some
reservations to adopt RDFa because it requires a number of
non-namespaced attributes that might clash with existing or future
attributes of the host language.  As this thread shows …

… this problem will soon be obsolete.  The RDFa developers realized
that there is no good reason for requiring non-namespaced attributes.
As an alternative to "no namespace", one will now also be able to put
the RDFa attributes into the XHTML namespace, e.g.

<mo xmlns:xhtml=""
