thanks a lot. This makes it clearer. Actually... much clearer.

The question is: is there a need, in your view and based on the discussions: to 'formally' define RDFa 1.1 Lite as some sort of a 'profile' (oops, I used this ugly term again:-) of RDF 1.1? To formally define some sort of a conformance criteria for processors? With all my love to your blog page:-), it would be good to have that documented somewhere, probably on the W3C site...

Also: does RDFa 1.1 Lite include the initial context? Ie, the default prefixes and terms?
