I also wanted to mention that I've volunteered to Ian Hickson to convert 
this document into section format for inclusion in the HTML5 document 
for review.

Not long ago, Ian mentioned that he was looking for volunteer editors. 
I'm not precisely an RDFa expert, but others who are have volunteered to 
help ensure that what I produce will work for the RDFa community, and 
I'm sure that additional feedback from the HTML WG would ensure what I 
create would work for the HTML5 working group.

Normally I would assume we would write a proposal and then submit for 
review, but the HTML WG operates under the CTR (commit-than-review) 
process, so we'll need to get this section committed to the HTML5 
document, first, in order to do an effective review.

I don't think we have to produce more use cases in order to justify this 
new addition--the editor seems to have deemed them sufficient to make a 
modification to the HTML5 document.
