Hi folks,

Gregg and I discussed the Reference Folding feature a bit today and then
I went through and "refined" the text a bit. Readers will have to let us
know if it is an improvement or not.

http://www.w3.org/2010/02/rdfa/sources/rdfa-in-html/Overview-src.html

High-level changes:

1. Renamed the feature from "Reference Folding" to "Property Copying".
2. Got rid of "rdfa:Prototype" as you may want to copy properties from
   something that isn't an rdfa:Prototype.
3. Changed "rdfa:ref" to "rdfa:include".
4. Removed the pass that removes the "prototype" features, as that may
   not be what the author always wants to do. For example, if you have
   a base model for something like a car, you don't want to delete
   it from the data as the knowledge of what the base model is can be
   useful.
5. Based on feedback from Bruce Lawson of Opera, I changed the first
   example to be a little more accessible.
6. I removed the use of bnodes in the examples because bnodes scare
   people.

Thoughts?
