noted, but on form submit that gets lost surely, of primary concern is
to be able to use (and submit) typed names and values - this would be a
huge time saver in a linked-data rdfa world and also allow for lots of
nice functionality on the client side (form auto-completion etc).

regardless of fondness of syntax, is it valid?

aside: perhaps for off-list discussion, are there other approaches?

Nathan
