Mark, Ivan,

When two experienced SW professionals say so, I should better
shut up now, right? ;)
 
But wait! There is still something to clarify:

Mhm. Can't see why you should be frustrated about that.
As in my first answer to Ivan [1],  I quite clearly stated that 
 
'Mark has put together a comprehensive list of options we have ...'

referring to your post [2]. To me, these are the options, no doubt.
I did NOT intend to add something here, or question the options 
you laid out in great detail. These solutions are _very_ clear to me ...
We just have to resolve, which one to pick.

I am very happy that you agree here with me ;) 
 
If you read my mail [1] carefully, then you will recognise that
I was actually only talking about the RDF concepts [3] and IIRC
it was Ivan who came up with the example from the RDF/XML syntax
in [4] ...
 
Still, I do not buy your argument, here. IMHO we have with RDFa pretty
much the same situation as with RDF/XML. Both build upon the abstract
syntax and RDF model defined in [3] and both are 'just' concrete serialisations
of RDF graphs. Why should we not 'learn' something from RDF/XML?
 
Cheers,
      Michael
 
BTW: I already pointed out that the original intend of my posting was
to contemplate on the subset of RDF we intend to support in RDFa rather
than to add new solutions. Regarding solutions, you Mark, and Ben, and 
Steven, etc. have a lot of experience that I do respect and I am happy to learn.
You can, however, believe me that I've been dealing with RDF for a while as well,
so I think I can contribute a little bit, here ;)
