I took an action [1] to review this [2] document from Dan Connolly,
which is intended as background for/input to a finding wrt issue
RDFinXHTML [3].

I think it's a good start, and a useful summary of the background.  I
think it would benefit from adding a bit more about the possibility
opened up by the GRDDL approach of using 'vernacular' or 'colloquial'
XML to include metadata in XHTML and other documents.

GRDDL as currently implemented supports this, and allows for the
mapping to be stated on a per language basis via annotations in a
(RDF/W3C XML) Schema document as well as on a per-document basis via
the 

   xmlns:data-view="http://www.w3.org/2003/g/data-view#" 
   data-view:interpreter="...xsl" 

mechanism.

The binding of metadata extraction information at the language level
is also an obvious application of work at Edinburgh on schema-based
databinding reported at XML 2001 [4] and Extreme 2003 [5], and the
SWAD project has pursued this to some extent, although the only thing
I find that comes close in their reports uses a slightly different
technology [6].
