1. It seems to complain about various rel and property attributes being
"found outside typeof". This suggests that they don't have a proper way
of determining the subject of a triple.

2. Although they only advertise support for their own vocabulary, they
seem to pick up all properties associated with any resource which has a
typeof attribute.

3. They seem to ignore the "content" attribute.

Dear Google, please, please parse RDFa using the algorithm published in
the RDFa syntax specification. A suitably talented coder can probably
implement it in an afternoon.
