I'm Harry Halpin, the Chair of the GRDDL WG [1] which links XML and
XHTML(including "microformats") to the Semantic Web in order to
faciliate the deployment of the Semantic Web. w

In order to prevent a "surprise" Last Call, I'd like for your WG to know
that we are going to go, barring any final comments or problems, to
request move to Last Call on or shortly after Feb 15th for the following
three documents:

1) GRDDL Specification [2]
2) GRDDL Primer [3]
3) GRDDL Use Cases [4]

We believe this technology is related (of course!) to the SWD WG, and
we'd appreciate if this message was forwarded to either your listserv or
to interested parties in your list.

Primarily, we are interested in interoperating with RDFa, and have
included a use-case involving RDFa  [2] and in our Primer [3]. While
currently in our example in the Primer we will just RDFa as an "input"
format to extract RDF/XML from, in our Use-Case document we have a use
case that involves using a RDFa-aware browser and converting from
microformats to RDFa, much like Ben Adida's "hGRDDL" work [5]. We plan
to link to that work in our primer, should we use this link [6]?

Also, is this the most stable RDFa spec? [7] Is that URI going to
change? Also, since we are aiming for interoperability with SWD
specifications, if appropriate, do link to GRDDL specs.

Note that although people seem to forget this, GRDDL takes in an XML
document and produces an abstract RDF graph, which can be serialized as
RDFa, so GRDDL is *not* limited to producing RDF/XML.
The test-suite uses RDF/XML as its output tests, but it does not match
on the bytes, but on the graph.
