Clarify the legality of the use of names from the RDF namespace, e.g. can 
rdf:Bag be used as a property or can rdf:Description be used as a property 
attribute etc.

     rdf:resource, rdf:bagID, rdf:parseType, rdf:aboutEach and rdf:li
     except as reserved names as specified in the grammar is an error.
   o resolves that test case

   o resolves that  a copy of that test case be created as an error
     test case
