I would propose NOT to include this test for HTML5 (ie, modify the manifest). The XHTML1 is clear in this respect, and tests the RDFa processor which is the goal after all.

The purpose of this test is to show that a processor generates an rdfa:Error when it detects a malformed document. If a processor can do this with XHTML I think that's sufficient. As fas as I'm concerned, we can remove it for HTML4 & HTML5.
