            Bug ID: 22741
           Summary: validator.w3.org does not give an option to validate
    Classification: Unclassified

HTML+RDFa is a W3C Proposed Recommendation, and it is currently in use in a
number of specifications under development with the permission of the
publication folks.  ReSpec automatically generates HTML+RDFa (or XHTML+RDFa). 
Unfortunately, the validator complains about RDFa in documents, seemingly
because it is enforcing the RDFa Lite restrictions on the documents.  This is
causing some consternation in the W3C spec development community.

There should be an option to validate using HTML+RDFa, not just HTML+RDFa Lite.
 And this option should be the default, at least when checking from 'pubrules'
because RDFa Lite is inadequate for the semantic markup that is being embedded
in W3C specifications.
