If I understand it correctly,

<span rel="role" resource="[xhv:copyright]">...</span>

should not be valid (xhv being the XHTML namespace) because is it not 
one of the values defined as a permitted value for 'role' in the 
namespace document (although 'copyright' _is_ a defined term in the xhv 
namespace). So my question is: should an RDFa processor check this and 
ignore the triple? Or should it generate the triple nevertheless?
