the v nemaespace prefix

A number of examples in use an
undeclared namespace prefix, e.g. s: in 2.2.1:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<RDF xmlns="">
  <Description about="">
    <s:Creator xmlns:s="">Ora Lassila</s:Creator>

(I assume this should be associated with and
v: in several examples, including section 2.2.2:
    <rdf:Description about="">
      <s:Creator rdf:resource=""
         v:Name="Ora Lassila"
         v:Email="" />

Here s: is again undeclared, but I assume it's Dublin Core.  I'd suggest
using dc: for that, for clarity, but s: is fine too :-)

But what is v: ?

Also, we have later, xmlns:s="", where is the web page for a charity in aid of people woth
regenerative retina disorder (a form of partial-sightedness).

I assume was meant to be an illustrative example???
Or is this an error?
