Would it be possible to ask one of the TAG members a text that would satisfy them? I would hate to spend our time on wording when we have our hands full with other things...

I guess Jonathan would be the best candidate. If we agree, I am also happy to contact him.

In the case of an important RDFa practice this isn't possible - you look at the text/html or application/xhtml+xml media type registration, and they have stories about fragids that don't include the RDFa use.
