Note that RDF *demands* that attributes be namespaced; the control ones
like id, about, resource *must* belong to the RDF namespace, and the
others that represent actual RDF properties (an optional use, you can
use elements instead) *must* belong to a namespace other than the RDF one.

Furthermore, XLink being an attribute-only architecture requires namespaced

So please don't make general-purpose XML tools that outlaw namespaced
