Julian, I was going to enter it, but will hold off if you're going to. 
It is connected to your predefined vocabularies issue. In fact, Manu 
that's another issue that could be marked in your document, though your 
overall section issue could cover that.

If the person who raises the issue "owns" the issue, Manu would you 
rather "own" this issue? I'm willing to "own" it, but I'm not a member 
of the RDFa group, and haven't been specifically involved in the current 
effort. However, willing to help. Just holler.
