Request to publish HTML+RDFa (draft 3) as FPWD

The 3rd draft of the HTML+RDFa specification has been released and is
available here:

The diff-marked version can be found here:

Changes in this version of the spec include:

* Lots of xmlns: fixes and spec language changes around xmlns:.
* Explicit references from HTML+RDFa sections to pertinent sections of
  XHTML+RDFa spec.
* Explicit language ensuring that RDFa attributes, attribute values,
  and CURIEs are conforming in HTML5 and XHTML5.
* Normative pointers to xmlns:-prefixed attribute processing that
  should be used to create URI mappings in non-XML mode documents.
* Added editorial warnings about potential changes in xmlns: as
  the HTML5 document moves toward Last Call and the distributed
  extensibility issue is addressed.

There are now 2 remaining issues, 6 deferred issues (that should be
addressed via a separate document, wiki, process), and 30 addressed
issues. Details on the status/resolution of each issue can be found here:

There have been no issues that have been added to the wiki by reviewers
or that have been re-opened by reviewers since the last draft was
published. Discussion related to the second draft didn't produce any
technical issues, but that doesn't mean there aren't any. If there are
any new technical issues, they must and will be dealt with during the
Working Draft phase.

I feel confident that the remaining 2 issues can be addressed and that
the document is ready for FPWD.

Sam, Paul, Maciej, this is a request to publish HTML+RDFa as a FPWD.
Please let me know if there is any other W3C process that is required
before the document can be published as a FPWD.
