Chiming in here: I don't think the data- approach makes sense in general 
(it's rather arbitrary, not everything is data), and it definitely 
doesn't make sense for RDFa: we want to use consistent attributes across 
our XHTML and HTML implementations so users can truly copy-and-paste 
from one document to another.

HTML5 is still very much in flux. In my opinion, the right thing to do 
is to begin to use RDFa markup as is in HTML4/5, see how that works in 
various deployments, and then work with the HTML WG to standardize RDFa 
in HTML5.
