HTML+RDFa Heartbeat Draft

From: Manu Sporny <msporny@digitalbazaar.com>

Hey folks,

The timing on this is a bit weird since this group is currently in
transition from a Task Force to a Working Group. The heartbeat draft for
the RDFa spec for HTML should be made by January 15th, 2010. I have made
some of the additions that WHAT WG and HTML WG folks have requested, and
 added language that RDFa TF has begrudgingly requested, namely:

* Updating HTML5 coercion to Infoset rules (normative)
* Clarifying how to extract RDFa attributes via Infoset (informative)
* Clarifying how to extract RDFa attributes via DOM2 (informative)

I can't imagine that this draft is going to make people happy on either
side of the debate for the following reasons:

* Updating the HTML5 coercion to Infoset rules needs input from
  implementers and may be a non-starter.
* Some believe that there is no need to state anything about Infoset or
  DOM2, others believe that it should be normative language. I have
  stated how to extract RDFa information in both Infoset and DOM2, but
  left the language as informative.

Feedback on the current draft would be appreciated:

Diff-marked version:

I'll make the request in HTML WG to publish the document as a heartbeat
draft on Tuesday, January 12th, 2010. I'll try to integrate as much
feedback from this community as possible into the document before the
request to publish.
