I'm not sure I understand the question, but as a data point eRDF has a 
convention for embedding RDF classes:

"For tags with an id attribute and for anchors any tokens in the class 
attribute beginning with a hyphen are considered to be RDF class names"
  -- http://research.talis.com/2005/erdf/wiki/Main/RdfInHtml#classes

Tokens without the hyphen prefix are interpreted as properties.
