You can provide a translation of your rdfa<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RDFa>
+xhtml <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XHTML> into normal
GRDDL <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GRDDL>.

That basically means into putting a profile attribute into your <head> tag
which points to a resource which says "This is how you pull out RDF from

<head profile="http://ns.inria.fr/grddl/rdfa/">

You could provide links to an installation of Cognition or similar to
extract that on the fly - http://buzzword.org.uk/swignition/grddl
