DataRSS, surely? DataRSS is RDFa in Atom.

Regarding an RSS 1.1 Core specification, it looks to me like there are
currently three "branches" of RDFa syntax:

1. XHTML+RDFa - the original, and a W3C Rec. DataRSS uses the same
branch of RDFa - it's essentially just got different tag names.

2. HTML+RDFa - small refinements on XHTML+RDFa necessary to get it to
work on an HTML DOM.

3. SVG 1.2 Tiny - this differs significantly from the other two in that
it may also legitimately include RDF/XML chunks.

RDF 1.1 Core needs to unite not only the first two, but also the third
branch - XML-based varieties of RDFa which can legitimately include
RDF/XML chunks. (It should specify whether triples from all of them form
a single graph or should/may be separated into separate graphs. It might
even be useful if:

	<x property="foo:bar" datatype="rdfa:reified">

resulted in something like the following N3:

	<> foo:bar { ... } .

Just some things to think about...
