You can use profile values *other* than that in GRDDL documents, which
is what I was assuming RDFa would be doing. The profile document just
has to use the following mechanism:

http://www.w3.org/TR/grddl/#profile-bind

And then you'd end up with something like the following:

   <head profile="http://www.w3.org/ns/rdfa">

I've seen one profile floating about for RDFa, but I don't think that
will be endorsed by the group since it wasn't a www.w3.org URI. It'd
be nice to know what is going to be used, to make early adoption
easier. We all await the next draft.

That doesn't matter since, as Shane points out, XHTML + RDFa documents
require a DOCTYPE declaration at the top of the file. If you can add
that, you can add @profile.
