Hi Al,

This is an official response to an RDFa Last Call comment[1], tracked as
ISSUE-114[2], that you sent on April 3rd, 2008 on behalf of PFWG. We
considered the comment on April 24th and resolved the issue on the call
last week.

While the group has not considered in detail how RDFa processors might
be developed to be able to accept dynamic content, this seems to be
primarily an implementation issue. We acknowledge that an alternative
specification of RDFa in functional terms (as suggested by another
commenter in issue 112)[3] may make it easier to understand how to
develop such an implementation.

At the present time, it is not obvious that there is a tractable
solution to the full problem. However, we have created a page on the
RDFa wiki so that methods of dynamic content parsing[4] for RDFa can be
documented as they happen. Take note of librdfa and Fuzzbot and how they
plan to handle DOM changes[5].

Due to this approach there is currently no need to update the RDFa
Syntax and Processing Document.

We thank you for the suggestion.  We will add this to a list of
things to consider in a future revision of RDFa.

Please let us know if this resolution works for you and the rest of PFWG.
