Note that the XML Namespaces recommendation states that XML namespaces _do_
have internal structure (but does not specify what the structure is).
Formally, a space may generally be described as a pair:
(This can be pictured by drawing a rectangle around a piece of a graph and
giving it a name)

In the RDDL model, each term can be represented as the ID of the
rddl:resource element -- in this case the set of rddl:resource elements
defines a set of names.
Each term or ID is itself associated with the rddl:resource tuple:
<id, nature, purpose, lang, href>
