To: "HTML WG" <public-html@w3.org>

According to the working group charter [1] section 2.1 "The HTML WG is
encouraged to provide a mechanism to permit independently developed
vocabularies such as Internationalization Tag Set (ITS), Ruby, and
RDFa to be mixed into HTML documents.".

I have skimmed the mailinglist archives but find little information on
the status of RDFa in HTML5.

As you may know, RDFa provides a framework with which it is possible
to embed machine readable data in documents using custom vocabularies.
As more business domains are moving online the need for custom
vocabularies will increase. Thus, I believe that RDFa in HTML5 will be
valuable.
