Put it this way, if the W3C can implement our proposal in RDF ready for 
the next release of complient browsers, so be it, but if including it 
in a HTML 4.1 version to be ready for the next version of complient 
browsers is faster, then do the latter, on other words:

   Don't bother doing it in RDF unless the browsers can support it
   quickly. Otherwise, it'll be HTML 4.x.
