Thank you for forwarding this review request to the HTML WG.  

1. Document conformance

Section 3.1 "Document Conformance" states: "In order for a document to claim that it is a conforming HTML+RDFa Lite document".   To me this means that the RDFa Lite 1.1 specification not only specifies a proper subset (aka profile) of RDFa 1.1 but it also profiles the HTML + RDFa Working Draft [1] and provides a new definition of document conformance for the combination of HTML5 and RDFa 1.1 Lite.

I am not sure if this is the best model.  For example the RDFa 1.1 specification itself does not define "document conformance" but this is found in the HTML + RDFa Working Draft.  Another alternative instead would be to define this new document conformance level in the HTML +RDFa Working Draft by adding a reference from the HTML +RDFa Working Draft to the RDFa 1.1 Lite specification.    Did you consider this way of defining the two different "document conformances" for HTML + RDFa and HTML +RDFa Lite?

2. RDFa Lite Conformance

In addition shouldn't Section 3 Conformance explicitly state that only the attributes included in RDFa Lite specification can be used in a HTML + RDFa Lite document, etc.

Subject: Request for Review of RDFa Lite FPWD

The HTML WG Chairs have asked me to send a request for review of the RDFa Lite 1.1 First Public Working Draft (candidate):


The RDF Web Apps WG had intended to publish this document on this coming Thursday, December 8th 2011. The Transition Request has already been approved, but upon notifying the HTML WG chairs, they felt that this group should also take a look at the document before FPWD publication.

If you are interested in RDFa and HTML, and have a few spare cycles, please take a few minutes to review the spec (it's a very short 15 minute read).
