Re RDFa Primer 1.0 - working draft.

The first paragraph is unclear (except perhaps to those of you/us who know
what it is about and don't need a Primer). The draft mixes the current state
of affairs with the desired future stare of RDF-enabled XHTML. I'd suggest
that you change the first sentence in this from 

"Current web pages, written in HTML, are chock-full of structured data"

To something like this

"Current web pages may contain a large amount of structured data, but the
unstructured, text-oriented nature of HTML, makes such information
inaccessible." 

The next sentence could be changed to "IF publishers could ... etc. " and a
few minor changes to the following paragraph would make the send clearer. It
would be a good idea to include a notion of what "structured data" is too. 

If it's not too late and if you like I can have a go at a quick re-write
along these lines - please let me know.
