HTML+RDFa issue 120

Heads up!

There is an issue filed against HTML+RDFa with the HTML WG on the use
of CURIEs within RDFa. Ian Hickson has written a change proposal for
HTML+RDFa:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-archive/2011Jan/att-0022/cp-120.html

This proposal, if adopted, would make the @profile and @prefix
attributes non-conforming in HTML+RDFa, and require user agents to
ignore them. It would also require user agents to ignore @xmlns:*
attributes. In summary, there would be no mechanism for authors to
define prefix mappings.

In my capacity as invited expert to the HTML WG, I've submitted a
counter-proposal:

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/RDFaPrefixesNoChange

This proposes that no technical changes be made to HTML+RDFa, but
editorial changes be made to promote the use of full URIs in RDFa,
and make it clearer that CURIEs are simply an abbreviation for the
full URIs.

The proposal also suggests that the HTML+RDFa editor (Manu) work with
the RDFa Working Group to make sure examples with full URIs are
similarly featured more prominently in XHTML+RDFa and RDFa Core.
