As per my action from today's meeting, I propose the following text for 
the RDFa Syntax Errata document:

Section 9.3 defines a collection of "reserved word" values.  These 
values are only interpreted in the context of @rel and @rev.  @rel and 
@rev have been historically defined to be case-insensitive.  Section 9.3 
does not indicate whether the reserved words are case-sensitive or 
case-insensitive.  However, Section 5.4.4 does mandate that the use of 
these values are required to be mapped to URIs in the XHTML Vocabulary 
via fragment identifiers, and fragment identifiers are by definition 
case-sensitive.  For the avoidance of doubt, a Conforming RDFa Processor 
MUST treat the reserved word values as case-insensitive on input, and 
MUST transform the values to lower-case when mapping them to URIs in the 
XHTML Vocabulary.


Comments?
