Well... 

I was actually thinking along the lines of evolving the XHTML
spec to allow RDF in the header officially ;-)

Of course, any kind of embedding of RDF in XHTML will require changes
to the XHTML schema if you want to validate the instance, so I
don't see how this can be avoided. Putting the RDF in the header
seems a rather simple tweak and keeps avoids any confusion regarding
whether RDF interleaved with XHTML content in the body needs to
be displayed in some fashion.

Cheers,

Patrick
