All,

Proposal:
Add a mechanism to RDFa that allows to indicate
a graph's provenance (aka named graphs, etc.).

In the first phase we should decide IF we want
this (or not :), then if/when we agree, we should
discuss HOW to implement it.

Rational:
Due to the ongoing discussions [1] and Fabien's
W3C member submission [2] is ask myself:
Why don't we introduce this feature in RDFa?

As we are about (or partly already did) add new
stuff anyway (such as XHTML voc, CURIE, etc.), 
why not supporting this IMO very important feature 
right from the beginning?

Any thoughts?

Cheers,
	Michael
