Michael, may I suggest you not make a bad situation worse, by tossing in RDFa
references willy nilly all throughout your document?

These are just as inappropriate as the Microdata references. There's a term
that should be branded across the forehead of every spec writer: Less, is more. 

Your document is an HTML Language Reference. At least, that's what your title
says. Neither Microdata, nor RDFa, are part of the HTML language. That's why
neither is part of the HTML5 spec. 

Your document is useful because it provides a simple to read and access
overview of the HTML language -- the syntax, the requirements, the
relationships between the elements. It does so cleanly, without all of the DOM
and other material in the HTML5 spec. (The DOM interface pushes this, but at
least it's presence is understandable). 

The more you add, the less useful the document will be.
