Absolutely awesome!

Can anybody else join in this thing? My nerd genes faded into oblivion 
about 15 years ago (just between Assembler and C++) but the possibility 
that you have done what could lead to a "geezer-friendly" system for 
putting RDF stuff into an XHTML file, particularly if we get all those 
"about (required), creator, date, description, format, language, publisher, 
relation, rights, subject, title" items you list.

In the WAI Working Groups for both content guidelines and tools (and 
possibly protocols/formats) we are wrestling with the notion of 
suggesting/requiring metadata dealing with the conformance claims made by 
authors that are a little more reassuring than just a logo at the bottom. 
As more regulations on publicly-funded sites' accessibility-for-everyone 
proliferate this is going to be a means of self-regulation that would fit 
in nicely.

I would like to commend you for actually doing something in this matter. 
Perhaps the action/talk ratio is taking a turn towards becoming > 1?
