A few comments:

1. The data URI in your example has a capital 'L' instead of a colon. Yes,
they're right next to each other on the keyboard!

2. When I recommended using data: URIs, what I meant was not:

    <vCard:photo>
        data:image/gif;base64,MSJD....
    </vCard:photo>

but rather:

    <vCard:photo rdf:resource="data:image/gif;base64,MSJD...." />

That way, a consuming application can always rely on the value of
vCard:photo being the URI of an image.

3. The note includes a bunch of explanations on how to use generic RDF
features like rdf:parseType. Are we aiming for this to be a tutorial for
how to write RDF/XML or a vocabulary definition? If the latter, then I
don't think we need to include explanations of syntactic features. (That
said, an accompanying tutorial might be useful too.)
