Thanks for putting TopBraid on the wiki!  Please allow me (as one of the 
TopBraid developers) to clarify our current status.

We have added support for parsing RDFa files to TopBraid last year, 
based on a hand-written parser.  We have also added some basic editing 
support that provides auto-completion, syntax highlighting and a triples 
viewer (you may want to mention this on the Wiki).  These features have 
been announced quite a long time ago, and now (with the exciting Yahoo 
strategy shift) we are looking into updating and expanding the RDFa 
capabilities in our tool.  The RDFa support in the current TopBraid 
version 2.5.2 might not be 100% up to date with the spec.  We hope to 
have a stronger version in a couple of weeks, likely also an entry-level 
product with a lower price.

In the meantime I would be very pleased to hear from anyone on this list 
who has suggestions on how an ideal RDFa editor would look like.  I 
think the acceptance of this technology in general will benefit if tool 
vendors catch up.  BTW, TopQuadrant is also hiring if anyone wants to 
join and help :)
