           Summary: HTML+RDFa 1.1 in @version could be confusing

Since HTML5 does not have a version specification and RDFa does, <html
version="HTML+RDFa 1.1" lang="en"> can be confusing with regard to
understanding what is actually being versioned here. It seems to be that it's
HTML (implied 5) plus RDFa 1.1 but without an explicitly stated HTML version
number, it looks like the it is 1.1 of something called HTML+RDFa.

My recommendation would be to add a version number to the HTML part of the
string: <html version="HTML5+RDFa 1.1" lang="en">
