As for me, I've already provided my comments which were taken into
account and I'm happy with the 'look and feel' of the new RDFa Primer.
Great job - now, let's get it out!

(I note this here and now as I'll very likely not be able to make it
tomorrow due to travelling; maybe I get some kinda connection to join in
IRC ...)
