The rddl:resource element could do couple of things html:a couldn't. 
First of all, it could contain itself. This is ruled out by the XHTML 
specification. Secondly, it could contain block-level elements like 
div and h1 and p, even entire sections. The a element only contains 
inline elements:

<!-- content is %Inline; except that anchors shouldn't be nested -->

<!ENTITY % a.content
    "(#PCDATA | %special; | %fontstyle; | %phrase; | %inline.forms; | 
%misc.inline;)*">
<!ELEMENT a %a.content;>
<!ATTLIST a
   %attrs;
   %focus;
   charset     %Charset;      #IMPLIED
   type        %ContentType;  #IMPLIED
   name        NMTOKEN        #IMPLIED
   href        %URI;          #IMPLIED
   hreflang    %LanguageCode; #IMPLIED
   rel         %LinkTypes;    #IMPLIED
   rev         %LinkTypes;    #IMPLIED
   shape       %Shape;        "rect"
   coords      %Coords;       #IMPLIED
   >

I'm not sure how important this is, but it does mean this proposal is 
less flexible than RDDL1
