I see this as something that will happen more and more frequently and
not only within vocabularies defined by the W3C ;=) ...

There is a lot of overlap between vocabularies that have been defined
independently and it would often make sense to create new modules to
isolate the common feature and reduce the overlaps.

I should have thought about it before W3C XML Schema is CR :( but after
reading the XLink remapping document, I wonder if a feature to define
"synonyms" wouldn't have been useful.

To be able to say:

"consider @href and @xlink:href as equivalent"
"consider @style and @css:style as equivalent"
"consider @base and @xml:base as equivalent"
"consider @lang and @xml:lang as equivalent"

would solve many issues...
