It seems to be that the HTML4+RDFa doc type is useful only if the validator can be hacked as suggested.

[[
What some of us have been discussing OUTSIDE THE SCOPE OF THE RDFa TASK 
FORCE is whether it would be possible to define a profile of RDFa that 
was usable in HTML documents.  This would be a separate document type, 
based upon HTML 4.01.  It would have its own FPI, and people could use 
it to validate if they wanted.  The reason the issue of the validator 
came up at all is that XHTML+RDFa relies upon the XML Namespaces 
specification and "xmlns:*" attributes.  There is a hack in the 
validator now to stop it warning about use of those attributes in XML 
dialects, and we discussed whether a similar hack would work in an SGML 
context.
