report=While the validator correctly points out that property attributes
cannot occur under the document element, I question the usefulness of
considering the attributes on the rdf:RDF document element as being
properties.  In this case, it seems unreasonable to consider attributes such
as xml:lang, xml:space, xml:base, xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation, and
xsi:schemaLocation to be RDF properties.  You may need to define these
attributes on the document element, especially when you have ISO 9000
requirements that specify that all document must specify a schema for its
grammar.  While RDF in general cannot be represented by XML Schema, a
particular RDF application XML grammar can providing you limit yourself to a
subset of RDF.  It's unclear to me after reading 500+ pages of RDF
specifications whether this is a problem with the validator or an oversight
with RDF or the RDF/XML serialization.
