Hi Ivan,

I came across your excellent talk from the ISWC 06 conference--I found
a great many very useful references in there, so thanks for that. :)

I'd like to flag up a couple of points on RDFa's goals and history,
though, if I may.

You say "not bound to XHTML2 (any more)", but just for the record, it
never was. In fact it wasn't even bound exclusively to XHTML--the
October 2004 draft [1] has samples that use XHTML 1.1 and SVG, and
even makes reference to using RDFa in SSML.

You also say "developed in the SW Deployment Working Group", which
although it's true that RDFa has been worked on there for quite a
while now, its origin is most definitely the HTML Working Group.

It may seem picky, but since RDFa will hopefully be appearing in more
presentations, I felt it worth pointing these things out...but as I
say, the presentation was great!
