They're not in XML, so it doesn't have to. XHTML is validated as XML,
and so is RDF. If you include RDF in XHTML, then you have to validate
the whole lot as XML. Murray has already pointed out why validation is
essential, and indeed "conforming to published grammars" is actually
an accessibility checkpoint [1], listed in WCAG 1.0 [2].
