At the risk of sounding heretical...  if HTML5 DOES NOT INCLUDE @profile 
(in other words, @profile is not defined in any way in HTML5) then why 
can't we just define it for use in RDFa?  It essentially has no 
semantics today.  Adding semantics that are only useful in an RDFa 
context can't be any more confusing, can it?
