In describing transclusion to some colleagues, we realised that there 
was another issue.

In HTML it is normal for any ECMAscript to modify the DOM. What is 
displayed is the modified DOM rather than the original DOM.

For RDF/A, the reading of the metadata from the unmodified DOM perhaps 
should be primary. e.g. a naive RDF based implementation of RDF/A would 
ignore everything except the RDF/A and suck out the triples. This would 
not work if the metadata was in fact computed by the ECMAscript and then 
added to the DOM using RDF/A.
