Hello all

I am working with BBC News on implementing some RDFa in article pages on 
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news. rNews seems like the best candidate for us in 
terms of expressiveness and wider adoption, so I am thinking, as a first 
iteration, we will add something like this to article pages:

<head prefix="rnews: http://iptc.org/std/rNews/2011-10-07#"
resource="{published URL}"
<meta property="rnews:headline" content="{headline}"/>
<meta property="rnews:description" content="{description}"/>
<meta property="rnews:thumbnailUrl" content="{thumbnail URL}"/>
<meta property="rnews:datePublished" content="{date published}"/>
<meta property="rnews:creator" content=">"/>


We are currently working on an internal project to identify the 
real-world concepts mentioned in our stories and associate them back 
with the published article; when this is available we will add the 

<meta property="rnews:about" content="{GUID for 
<meta property="rnews:mentions" content="{GUID for 
person/place/organisation} "/>

Separately we will publish the BBC GUIDs we have created for 
person/place/organisations with sameAs links towikidata/freebase/dbpedia.

Does anyone see any problems with this approach?
