Yes:

The original RDF WG made a non-normative suggestion...
  http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-rdf-syntax-19990222/#transport

The RDF IG and RDF Core WG discussed problems with that suggestion...

Issue faq-html-compliance: The suggested way of including RDF meta data
in HTML is not compliant with HTML 4.01 or XHTML
http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#faq-html-compliance

It bubbled up to the TAG:

RDFinXHTML-35 : Syntax and semantics for embedding RDF in XHTML
http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/ilist#RDFinXHTML-35
(owner: yours truely)

The Semantic Web CG asked Joseph Reagle to start a task
force recently:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-in-xhtml-tf/


We're experimenting with WikiConsensus on the issue...

The wiki topic currently lists these examples:

///////

What sort of RDF metadata do folks want to put in their HTML documents,
anyway? 

      * bibliographic metdata; e.g. DublinCore (see also: [WWW]DC
        extraction service) 
      * rights metdata; e.g. CreativeCommons
      * geographic info: [WWW]discussion of geourl, HTML meta, and RDF
      * news; e.g. [WWW]site summaries; also [WWW]How should HTML
        content be represented? in an RSS wiki 
      * schemas and namespace documents; e.g. [WWW]HyperRDF, [WWW]RDDL
      * foaf info; e.g. [WWW]how DanC manages his foaf stuff
      * calendars and schedules; e.g. [WWW]DanC's travel schedule,
        [WWW]schedScrape.xsl
