ISSUE-104: NCNames in RIF+XML data

NCNames in RIF+XML data

Raised by:
Christian de Sainte Marie
Opened on:
xs:NCName constants are included as class and slot names in RIF+XML data to allow the interpretation of RIF+XML data combinations where some or all elements or attributes in the XML data are not in a namespace. As defined in [RIF-DTB], the lexical space of rif:iri consists of all absolute IRIs as specified in [RFC-3987]; as a consequence, it does not allow the representations of local names without namespaces.

But how can a string be interpreted as a class?
