Hi Danny,

The initial resolution to take the RDF/A approach was here:

	http://www.w3.org/2003/11/04-html-irc#T16-12-41
	RESOLUTION: import all RDF properties as attributes.

You'll see some recognisable snippets of <meta> and <link> in the  
discussion leading up to that resolution.

Later, when writing it up, we realised it didn't quite work as we had  
discussed during that meeting, and that led to the RDF/A approach, which  
has the same intended effect, but with different, though clearly related,  
attributes.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Steven
