It's worth mentioning that RDFa makes it pretty trivial (compared to
other RDF serialisations) to mark up multiple triples which differ only
in their predicate.

e.g.

<p xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/terms/"
   xmlns:foaf="http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/">
	By <a about=""
	      rel="foaf:maker dc:creator :author"
	      rev="foaf:made :made"
	      href="#i"
	>me</a>.
</p>

which creates the following five triples:

	@prefix dc:   <http://purl.org/dc/terms/> .
	@prefix foaf: <http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/> .
	@prefix xhv:  <http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/vocab#> .

	<> foaf:maker <#i> .
	<> dc:creator <#i> .
	<> xhv:author <#i> .
	<#i> foaf:made <> .
	<#i> xhv:made <> .
