The Status section of this document needs to be updated:

a) The following text from the first sentence is no longer true:
"This is the First Public Working Draft of the "HTML+RDFa: A mechanism for embedding RDF in HTML" specification for review by W3C members and other interested parties."

b) Since the Status section is supposed to describe the unique status of the WD, I would like to suggest that you add a paragraph based on your summary of changes in your email as the second paragraph of the Status section.  For example:

"This Working Draft includes the following changes:

* Updating HTML5 coercion to Infoset rules (normative)
* Clarifying how to extract RDFa attributes via Infoset (informative)
* Clarifying how to extract RDFa attributes via DOM2 (informative)"

Subject: HTML+RDFa Heartbeat Draft publishing request

Hey folks,

The heartbeat draft for the RDFa spec for HTML should be published by
January 15th, 2010. I have made some of the additions that WHAT WG, RDFa
TF and HTML WG folks have requested:

* Updating HTML5 coercion to Infoset rules (normative)
* Clarifying how to extract RDFa attributes via Infoset (informative)
* Clarifying how to extract RDFa attributes via DOM2 (informative)

I can't imagine that this draft is going to make people happy on either
side of the debate for the following reasons:

* Updating the HTML5 coercion to Infoset rules needs input from
  implementers and may be a non-starter.
* Some believe that there is no need to state anything about Infoset or
  DOM2, others believe that it should be normative language. I have
  stated how to extract RDFa information in both Infoset and DOM2, but
  left the language as informative.

Feedback on the current draft would be appreciated:

Diff-marked version:

http://html5.digitalbazaar.com/specs/rdfa-diff-20091015-20100115.html


This is a request for the HTML WG to publish this draft as a heartbeat
draft effective Friday, January 15th, 2010.
