Hello Dan,

what I find disturbing from an RDFa consumers point of view is the inflation
of quads. For example: A RFDa enhanced blog software repeating the basic
triples about an author in every blog post from that author. The information
also tends to be distributed over more documents.

Basically, where the information is found and how often it is repeated is 
driven by the presentation for humans.

Of course, putting up separate documents is more time-consuming than just 
adding some RDFa to an existing page. Also, aggregation of RDF from the web 
faces other problems that may be more serious. And having at least some RDF 
in the HTML at the right place offers opportunities for creating additional
benefit with addons that somehow enhance the page.
