Congratulations on your RDF/XML Syntax Proposed Recommendation [1]. One
quick comment before the review deadline passes. Re:

   "The DCMI has used and recommended rel="meta" when linking in RFC
    2731 - Encoding Dublin Core Metadata in HTML[RFC-2731] however
    rel="alternate" may also be appropriate." [2]

This may have come up before. Scanning RFC 2731 quickly, I don't see
link rel="meta" anywhere. dublincore.org used it though it is not in
the HTML 4 and XHTML 1.0 specs.

With some help from people on this list, here is what we did in

<link id="meta" rel="rel:meta" 
href="http://www.w3.org/2000/08/w3c-synd/#meta" />
<link rel="meta" href="Overview-about.rdf" />

where http://www.w3.org/2000/08/w3c-synd/#meta defines a profile [3]
for the "meta" link type. I'm sorry this is a little cumbersome and the
profile is rudimentary but it is technically correct and best practice
as far as I know.
