I'll stick my neck out an say this is not true. I checked the april
22 edition of RDFS <http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-schema/> and didn't
find that specification. The RDF MT defines an RDFS vocabulary as a
set of URI refs and doesn't say anything about RDFS documents.

[Not unrelated: an RDF property doesn't have a namespace but it
does have a name, which is a URI reference. If an RDF property is
placed in an XML namespace for serialization that's merely an
implementation detail of the XML serialization. RDF is not an XML

There's no problem coexisting.
