Hi Nicholas,

Thank you for taking the time to review the RDFa Lite draft. Could you
please send your feedback to either the HTML WG mailing list or the RDF
Web Apps mailing list. I ask this so that we have your feedback in the
public record (the latter mailing list is preferred):

public-rdfa-wg@w3.org

Answers to your questions below.

Glad to hear and yes, difficulty in comprehending the full RDFa spec is
why we have the RDFa Lite document.

In this document:

http://www.w3.org/2011/rdfa-context/rdfa-1.1

>  Is dc, foaf, and schema the full set?

No, there are others listed in the document above.

This is correct.

Then the ones that are reassigned locally, win.

>  Do the pre-definitions win, or the local assignments?

The local assignments win.

I hope this answers your questions, please let the mailing list know if
you have any further questions. :)
