Describing URI namespaces in RDF with VANN

Ian Davis' vocabulary for annotating vocabulary descriptions (VANN) can be used to associate an abbreviating prefix with the longer URI namespace that it represents. For example, the preferred prefix for PROV's OWL encoding [2] is prov, which abbreviates http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/prov/raw-file/tip/ontology/ProvenanceOntology.owl# [3]:

@prefix rdf: <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#> .
@prefix owl: <http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#> .
@prefix foaf: <http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/> .
@prefix vann: <http://purl.org/vocab/vann/> .

<http://prefix.cc/prov.file.vann>
