I agree that this is a key topic, and it is something I too am very
interested in. However, I don't think it's an RDFa issue, but rather
an RDF one. As you navigate around the web you can pick up statements
from all sorts of places, not just the page you are viewing, and not
just in RDFa. Being able to store those statements for use in many
contexts is an exciting prospect.
