It seems inconsistent to me to say on the one hand that the RDFa Task  
Force doesn't have to coordinate with the HTML WG because its work is  
XHTML-specific, but then on the other hand that the RDFa Task Force's  
work product can be applied to the text/html serialization of HTML. It  
seems to me you have taken both positions on this thread.
