Agreed. In Tika I'd only use the namespace URIs as plain strings with
no extra machinery around them.

Another alternative that I like is forget the idea of explicit
namespaces and simply use URIs as the metadata keys. This would be
perfectly in line with Dublin Core and would work reasonably well also
with RDF clients. As an added benefit we could adopt this approach by
simply modifying a few constants.
