Hi Sebastian,

It's not clear to me whether you are saying that you don't want to use
RDFa because:

* you don't like it, or;

* you think that it needs to have some user-oriented manifestation.

There is no requirement that the RDFa in a document is displayed to
the user in any way, or that the triples somehow 'double-up'. This
means that your example could also be marked up like this:

  <div
    xmlns:cd="http://www.recshop.fake/cd#"
    about="http://www.recshop.fake/cd/Empire_Burlesque"
  >
    <span property="cd:artist" content="Bob Dylan"></span>
    <span property="cd:dbpedia"
resource="http://dbpedia.org/resource/Empire_Burlesque"></span>
  </div>

Regards,

Mark
