After much discussion on past telecons and on the mailing list regarding 
this issue, we've concluded that this is a (widespread) problem with 
triple stores and SPARQL engines, not with RDFa. Specifically, triple 
stores and SPARQL engines are supposed to canonicalize all XMLLiterals 
and match them appropriately, according to RDF Concepts.

That said, to make things as productive as possible, we should use the 
most likely XMLLiteral serialization... I suspect that's double-quotes, 
unless someone else thinks otherwise?
