Hi Dan,

There's no obligation to include the @profile value in a document that
uses RDFa, but I guess it could be proposed that the test suite should
include it.

But even then, someone obviously needs to create a GRDDL transform
that works on documents that contain RDFa. And then that transform
needs placing at the right location, so that it gets picked up by the
GRDDL service. All of which is beyond the scope of the RDFa spec. (I
know that people are working on such a transform, though.)

Regards,

Mark
