RDFa/SWD (mis)coordination

I was the only person on both the last RDFa and SWD calls, so I unexpectedly (mis)reported back to SWD. (I also was hampered by being in transit during the call).

What I said, from memory, was that RDFa was hoping for a PR vote on the 19th August call, and hence would need reviewers appointed at the 5th Aug call.
Guus pointed out that reviewers are not needed for the PR documents, since they are essentially unchanged from the CR; although someone would need to look at the implementation report.

Looking at the minutes of the RDFa call, I see I had forgotten an extensive editorial issue, and that the plan was to ask for WG reviewers from the 19th August, for a PR vote early Sept.
The desire for review was because extensive editorial changes are needed to the examples addressing concerns from Alan Ruttenberg concerning 'philosophical' (my word) errors in the current examples. Ben is minuted as :
[[
benadida: Do we need reviewers for editorial changes?
   ... we need it for PR definitely.
   ... I think next week we need reviewers from the WG for PR.
]]

We will need to coordinate over whether:
a) this is a procedural misunderstanding on Ben's part
or
b) whether the concerns as to whether Alan's issue (122) is editorial or substantive requires WG review to approve TF judgment that this is editorial.

I also reported on the extensive change to the primer agreed as:

RESOLUTION: Change HTML to XHTML in Primer and add a short section
   pointing out that implementations may well accept RDFa in HTML
   though those documents won't validate.

Which was a compromise between a wide divergence of views.
