It looks like there is a lot of overlap between the new ISSUE 147 and
the closed ISSUE 123 "Should RDFa Core 1.1 introduce the concept of an
HTMLLiteral?" [1].

In the presentation of the "Official Response" [2], Manu wrote:

"The Working Group decided to leave the issue open and determine if
something needed to be done for the HTML5+RDFa specifications, since
that is where HTMLLiterals would make the most amount of sense. That is,
we ensured that HTMLLiterals are not prohibited by any RDFa Core 1.1,
and RDFa Lite 1.1 specification language. If the RDF WG creates an
HTMLLiteral datatype, the Working Group will revisit the issue at that
point."


Following up on suggestions already in this thread and slight
modifying the above, I suggest that the RDFa WG do adopt an existing
HTMLLiteral (if an appropriate rdf:Property exists) and furthermore
that it be the default datatype of triples generated for content that
contains elements. This is for the RDFa 1.1. in HTML specification.
