"""
> 4.1 Document Conformance
> http://www.w3.org/TR/rdfa-syntax/#docconf
> 
> | A strictly conforming XHTML+RDFa document is a document that requires
> | only the facilities described as mandatory in this specification. Such
> | a document satisfies the following criteria:
> |
> | 1. The document MUST conform to the constraints expressed in the
> | schemas in Appendix A - XHTML+RDFa Document Type Definition.
> 
> However, the DTD given doesn't allow for xmlns:* attributes which are
> beyond the ability of DTDs to deal with.
> 
> I propose one of two solutions:
> 
> 1. Preferred - change the conformance requirement to: "With the
> exception of xmlns:* attributes, the document MUST conform to the
> constraints expressed in the schemas in Appendix A - XHTML+RDFa Document
> Type Definition." The W3C XHTML validator already does this when
> checking document conformance.
> 
> 2. Less preferred - drop this criterion and make Appendix A informative.
