I believe that @profile would be most useful (in RDFa) to define a 
default vocabulary or namespace.

Example

<div profile="http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/"
         typeof="Person">
<span property="name">Ben Adida</span>
<a rel="homepage" href="http://adida.net/">http://adida.net/</a>
</div>

It would keep the use of prefixes and the use of xmlns down to a minimal.
I think if RDFa, Microdata and Microformats all adopt the use of 
@profile in this way they would all have a common ground.

Great stuff I think.

Best wishes.
