I will look into getting XHTML+RDFa listed.  No idea why HTML5 is listed 
- that's insane.  It's not even in last call.

With regard to named entities, my recommendation, and the recommendation 
of the XHTML 2 working group, is that people who plan to serve their 
documents using the media type application/xhtml+xml, avoid the use of 
named entities since many user agents do not process these correctly.  
This will be included in an upcoming update to the XHTML Media Types Note.
