Ah, that's problematic because we don't know at DOM generation time whether the user will want to save as HTML or XHTML, and I really don't want to suddenly break things for people who prefer to use HTML.

Do you think that your implementation could be made to work as a post-processor so that saving to HTML would do nothing, but saving to XHTML would include the RDFa (unless disabled)? It might be too hackish though.

One alternative could be to get the validator to accept it, though I suspect that might take some time :)
