Ah! Now I get it. It is a version of your content label ff extension but
for CC. Yes, that sounds like a nice thing to have indeed!

Caveat: at the moment, the CC content is stored in... HTML comment. That
is because putting RDF into HTML and still have it valid was not
possible. *That* is exactly why CC engaged into the RDFa work. But the
current status may make the extension's life a bit tougher...
