At the most recent RDF Core meeting we discussed some new words I
suggested about this issue:
   1) unprefixed attributes have no meaning in RDF and must not be
     used (excepting backwards-compatible accepting of rdf namespace
     attributes such as about, id etc.)

and the above words were accepted.  This decision was recorded in
  Draft minutes of 2001-05-11 RDF Core WG teleconference

Is this sufficient?
