Hi Peter,

The RDFa snippet in the spec is informative, and you are free to tweak it
as long as the resulting RDF graph matches the WebID profile [1] and the
SPARQL ASK query [2]. We're using the current RDFa REC spec which is RDFa
1.0, but we'll soon switch to RDFa 1.1 once soon as it reaches a more
stable status (it should come to Last Call in a couple of months). I'm in
the RDFa WG so I'll make sure to report back. I posted a RDFa 1.1 snippet
earlier this week on the mailing list [3]. RDFa 1.1 has several
improvements leading to simpler markup, plays well with HTML5 and isn't
as restrictive as RDFa 1.0 re doctypes.

Steph.
