All,

Based on [1] I would like to raise some issues regarding our
RDFa documents [2]. This is done, at least for now, from the
point of view of the RDFa Test Suite; might be valid in general
as well ...

 1. Regarding section '2.2.2 What needs to conform?' in [1]:
    Do we address this requirement? In this context it might help to 
    specify the 'products'.

    Does it help here to propose a division in REST-style extractor,
    and DOM-operating extractor? Did we even define how we call the 
    'XHTML+RDFa -> RDF' service, anyway? Is it a transformation, an
     extraction, etc. ?

 2. Regarding section '2.3.2 What is mandatory?' in [1]:
    Though I found two occurrences of 'must' in the RDFa syntax document
[3],
    I am not sure if we already make use of the RFC 2119 [4] keywords in
a 
    sensible way.

 3. Regarding section '2.4.5 Error Handling' in [1]:
    Do we need to specify an error handling mechanism? Though it might 
    be a bit of an overkill and this is not a strict requirement, but
rather
    a good practice, we might want to contemplate on this one as well.

I admit that all of this might seem to be a bit early, but again, in the
light of setting up the RDFa Test Suite, some of these and other related
issues bother me :)

Cheers,
	Michael
