For a single namespace xml:base (on the html element) does the trick.

This is getting into more like an RDF Schema with an about='uri'. The RDF
Schema vocabulary itself is fairly simple (5 or so elements).

Or in the body (so you can list the namespaces being described for example).
I had played around with something like this to see how complicated it might
be. I am not sure if it is useful but:
http://www.rddl.org/tddl is a RDDL description of a "Terminology Definition
and Description Language" and http://www.rddl.org/tddl-tddl is the same
language described in TDDL. Rather than an ID you could use a <tddl:Class
about="ns.."/> construct and multiple ones if desired.
To be clear, these documents are _not_ part of RDDL, are experimental and
are for discussion only.
