To be entirely fair, kudos go to Shane and the TF for good  
coordination work, for informing the validator community (not the QA  
WG, BTW, as that working group doesn't exist any more) of that new  
DTD and helping us patch the validator for a couple of issues  
annoying when validating XHTML+RDFa.

Good point. Unfortunately we've just released a couple of versions of  
the validator and there's no clear timeline as to when the next  
release should be, but if the RDFa TF thinks it'd be a good thing, we  
can add it in CVS for now, and in the next release.

As far as I can tell, no:
