worth noting that RDFa is mentioned as being a mechanism to partially 
enable extensibility in HTML though

[[
* "Need to have a way to avoid name clashes between attributes defined
    by other extensions." No explanation was provided as to why this need
    was not fulfilled by vendor attributes or RDFa, and no request was
    made to remove either.
]]

Best,

Nathan
