You say "final final" but still ask for feedback! Will you never
learn?! ;-)

The RDF/XML snippets in the spec include a bunch of extra whitespace -
presumably for clarity. Whitespace is considered significant in RDF/XML,
so perhaps it's not a good idea to include it in the examples. Clarity
could be retained using a modicum of syntax highlighting - e.g. bolding
literals and resource URIs.

The e-mail address in the RDFa example would perhaps be nicer as:

<a rel="v:email" href="mailto:corky@example.com">corky@example.com</a>

This is likely to be closer to how it could be used in real life. 

Also in the RDFa, I don't see much value in including the rdfs:Resource
types. Given that rdfs:Resource is essentially the base class of
everything (there is nothing which is not an rdfs:Resource), it doesn't
add any information and only serves to complicate the example.
