A namespace NAME is a URI. A namespace is not the same thing as its name.

One could better argue that we have no need for RDF because we have Google,
but so? But more to the point, RDDL allows the _owner of the namespace URI
DNS entry_ to serve as the authority regarding what resources are associated
with a namespace. RDDL (levaraging DNS and HTTP) is intended to serve as a
way for _you_ to describe _your own_ namespaces, not as a way for someone to
describe someone elses namespaces (which could be done in RDF).
