Yep - I was planning to output everything in RDFa ;-)  

In fact, that brings up another question.  I know I can make a tool (based on 
GetN3 !) that parses publicly available RDFa and RDF files and records which 
vocabs are used in conjunction with which.  

Is there any other form that the semantic web currently takes that is publicly 
accessible?  If I want to ask the question, what vocabs are used in what 
context, is it enough to spider and parse RDF and RDFa files that I can find 
on Google?  (yeah, and OWL when I feel up to it)

Does anyone have a feel for whether there is more semweb activity going on 
privately (military & enterprise) or publicly?

Interesting - I hadn't thought about doing the schema itself in RDFa!
