A number of examples in http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-rdf-syntax/ use an
undeclared namespace prefix, e.g. s: in 2.2.1:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<RDF xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#">
  <Description about="http://www.w3.org/Home/Lassila">
    <s:Creator xmlns:s="http://description.org/schema/">Ora Lassila</s:Creator>

(I assume this should be associated with www.purl.org/dc/elements/1.1) and
v: in several examples, including section 2.2.2:
    <rdf:Description about="http://www.w3.org/Home/Lassila">
      <s:Creator rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/staffId/85740"
         v:Name="Ora Lassila"
         v:Email="lassila@w3.org" />

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="http://description.org/schema/", where
description.org is the web page for a charity in aid of people woth
regenerative retina disorder (a form of partial-sightedness).

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