In a reasonable layering, the RDFa processor is layered on top of an  
HTML parser, in which case the RDFa parser can't in the general case  
tell if the input would have been well-formed if processed as XML. It  
seems like a bad idea to define RDFa processing in terms of the source  
bytes instead of defining it in terms of the output of the HTML  
parsing algorithm.
