OK, thanks for the clarification.

Good point.

On review, it looks like everything before "If you wish to make  
comments regarding this document" in HTML+RDFa would be better placed  
in the Abstract or the Introduction instead of Status of this Document  
(except perhaps 'This is a Working Draft of the "HTML+RDFa: A  
mechanism for embedding RDF in HTML" specification'. It seems like  
most W3C Working Drafts have a sentence similar to that, but not a  
description of technical contents of the spec. This seems like a  
detail that can be handled over the rest of the publication cycle.
