Hi folks,

During the schema.org workshop, a proposal was put forth by RDFas
resident hero, Ben Adida, for a stripped down version of RDFa 1.1,
called RDFa 1.1 Lite. The RDFa syntax is often criticized as having too
much functionality, leaving first-time authors confused about the more
advanced features. This lighter version of RDFa will help authors easily
jump into the Linked Data world. The goal was to create a very minimal
subset that will work for 80% of the folks out there doing simple markup
for things like search engines.

Summary: RDFa 1.1 Lite is a simple subset of RDFa consisting of the
following attributes: vocab, typeof, property, rel, about and prefix.
