On that note, is there any thought of using RDF/XML for metadata in 
future versions of HTML?

For example, something like:

<html xmlns="...">
<rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="...">
<rdf:Description about="">
   <title>Page title</title>


For XML-only implementations, you would require that the description 
of the page itself be the first child of /html/rdf:RDF and contain 
the html:title property. The script element could be replaced in a 
similar fashion.

It isn't backward compatible, but neither is XHTML 2. Even so, older 
browsers that just look for a "title" element can still interpret at 
least that much correctly.
