Because we didn't know better six years ago. Some things you only learn
from brutal experience.

They are in big trouble. Some of the biggest s**t in namespaces
(relative namespace URIs in particular) hit the fan in the intersection
between RDF and XML. Both sides retreated covered in feces and unhappy,
and the problem has never really been fixed. The W3C TAG is now trying
to muck out this sewer again, with only marginally more success.
