They don't automatically understand profile either, so it doesn't matter
much.
Having said that, in an XML Schmea version of XHTML, profile wuld/could be
explicitly defined as being for RDF metadata linking, so that would be my
preffered method for now.

HTML says use meta or head@profile, but overall doesn't really care much
about metadata, which is quite annoying for us.
The idea of an RDF rendering plugin is a good one...

In that case, get started on WCAG 2.0!

Are there any other ways to put RDF legally in XHTML other than:
head@profile,
meta@name=meta,
and meta@ content=DC.x?
