The syntax of RDFa certainly *differs* from the above, but as far as  
I know there aren't any situations where the differences cause  
problems. (Though certainly you could write an XSLT transformation  
which deliberately misinterprets RDFa and link to it via GRDDL. This  
is outside of the typical use case of GRDDL though, which generates  
RDF from microformats and microformat-like HTML, mostly looking at  
HTML classes.)

Persons are one of the key classes of user RDFa is aimed at. ;-)

If you publish personal data on the wild, wild web, then you really  
shouldn't have any expectation of privacy with regard to those data.  
That is true with or without RDFa.
