It is actually fetching DTDs for XHTML+RDFa, not the namespace URI.  
The reason is that XHTML+RDFa is still work in progress, and unlike  
most stable DTDs which the validator has in a local catalog, the often- 
changing DTDs are fetched directly from the site. I would like to use  
a caching proxy for these DTDs, but unfortunately, proxy support in  
the OpenSP engine (which the validator uses) has been on a someday  
pile for years...
