ISSUE-137 (Media Type): HTML+RDFa should normatively declare media types and describe how to identify relative to XHTML+RDFa 1.1 [RDFa 1.1 in HTML5]

Raised by: Gregg Kellogg
On product: RDFa 1.1 in HTML5

Raised on behalf of Alex Milowski.

The HTML+RDFa spec does not identify in a normative fashion the media types for which it applies. There is a passing reference to text/html, but no mention of application/xhtml+xml, which has lead to some confusion about processing of XHTML mode HTML5 documents relative to the XHTML+RDFa 1.1 spec.

I would clarify the HTML+RDFa 1.1 spec User Agent Conformance with something like the following:

[[[
HTML+RDFa documents should be labeled with Internet Media Types "text/html" or "application/xhtml+xml" as defined in [RFC3236].
]]]

There should also be an indication that XHTML mode HTML+RDFa 1.1 documents can be distinguished from XHTML+RDFa 1.1 documents by the lack of an XHTML DOCTYPE or @version.
