In the Sam-Ruby spirit of pointing out implementation issues to
encourage better conformance, yes, let's keep track of issues like doctype.

Also, in terms of Best Practices, if anyone from SlideShare is
listening, it would be *much* better if you reused existing markup on
the page rather than rewriting it all in invisible markup in the HEAD.
And while you're at it, add the Creative Commons link as rel="license"
when that's the case :)

But this is great of course. Also, it's interesting to note that this is
clearly in response to the Yahoo consumption of RDFa, and that the RDFa
is *correct* in terms of the triples it's producing, even though it's
not an exact copy-and-paste from Yahoo. Slowly but surely, we see that
having markup feedback (i.e. Yahoo is displaying it) encourages better
conformance.
