HTML5+RDFa LC is blocked by the HTML5 LC. I don't expect that HTML5 will
enter LC for several months, if not a year.

At the rate the HTML5 work is proceeding, we may not want to ever
release an HTML5+RDFa 1.0 LC and instead publish an HTML5+RDFa 1.1 LC
instead. I imagine that we'll have the RDFa 1.1 work done around the
same time that HTML5 goes to LC, but that's wild speculation on my part.

Once we have a FPWD of RDFa Core 1.1, we might as well update the
HTML+RDFa spec to refer to that instead of the older XHTML+RDFa 1.0
spec. I imagine that we'll fold in several of the items that we had to
author in HTML+RDFa into RDFa Core 1.1, and do so before HTML5 goes to
LC. So, as far as I can tell, this may be how it happens:

1. Feb-March: Work on RDFa Core 1.1, Publish FPWD RDFa Core 1.1
2. April: Publish HTML+RDFa Heartbeat with reference to RDFa Core 1.1
          instead of XHTML+RDFa 1.0
