Is this not exactly what the RDFa working group is tackling?

http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-rdfa-primer/

I think that having a generalized means of expressing embedded
semantic data makes a great deal of sense. Leveraging RDF also makes
sense. Not inventing the same wheel twice makes the most sense of all.

Should there be an effort to sychronize the efforts between this group
and the RDFa group to avoid conflict and to ensure common conformance?
