Hey folks,

So I've read over Allan's detailed comments [1], and here's what I'm
seeing so far. I'm splitting things up according to the "--" separation
Alan used in his email.

- the points about the domain conflicts in some section 2.2 examples
seems to be correct, and probably are worth a few corrections which I
believe are really clarifications for correct vocabulary use, and thus
have nothing to do with RDFa itself, and thus are editorial.

- the point about "referring to other documents and resources" is a bit
nitpicky, we are using @about, and that seems just fine. I would reject
that comment and say that @about is a reference.

- the point about <span> and the lack of reference is, I believe, a
misunderstanding about trying to extract *too* much meaning from the
HTML elements. This requires no more than a clarification, in my
opinion, about how often we are using HTML elements simply to carry RDF.

-- 

confusion about @typeof, merits a bit of editorial editing to make sure
all descriptions are consistent, but nothing significant here.

-- 

confusion about "no child nodes" in the plain literal subcase of step 9.
I think we should say something like "no child nodes *other than a text
node*". Small editorial.

-- 

some valid, but subjective, points about organization of certain
subparts of Section 6. It may be worth clarifying in Section 6 for which
steps in Section 5 they provide details.

-- 

CURIE reference: because that doc is not a REC.

-- 

@rel/@rev reserved words: the list of reserved keywords is expanded
beyond what was in XHTML modularization (I believe), thus that's the
reason for not referencing it.


=============

So, in other words, I *do not* think that Alan has raised any
substantive issues. I'm happy to help draft some language,
but I'd love to hear Mark and Shane's opinions on these points first.
