Thanks Michael, Ben, Guus, Dan,

Of course, on RDFa Primer [1] - we can read:

[[
RDFa is a syntax that accomplishes this metadata expression using a
set of elements and attributes that embed RDF in XHTML. An important
goal of RDFa is to achieve this RDF embedding without repeating
existing XHTML content when that content is the metadata. Though RDFa
was initially designed for XHTML2, one should be able to use RDFa with
other XML dialects, e.g. XHTML1, SVG, given proper schema additions.
]]

The support for XHTML 1.1 using the Metadata Module [2] should be
explained more clearly? So when module will'be ready on a dedicated
paragraph? With Ben Adida we discussed on this integration [3] and
following also original discussion on GRDDL list on integrating
Semantic Layer on XHTML page [4].

Well, regarding PR anyone (I if You like) can also try to update the
current definition also on Wikipedia [5] to explicit the XHTML 1.1
modularization question. Also writing article can be a fine way to
define the rela potential of RDFa, not only XHTML 2.0 (also 1.1).

Have a fine day,

Simone
