I believe that we are going to spec it such that
RDFa/Microformats/Microdata can each define how @profile is interpreted
by each respective Processor. The @profile proposal in HTML WG is going
to be very simple:

* Allow @profile on all elements.
* Specify that @profile is a white-space separated list of tokens.
* Some errata for HTML4.01 to correct how @profile is used in the wild
  - that white-space separated tokens are allowed.
* How to apply @profile on all elements to XHTML1.

It may be up to the RDFa WG to define how @profile affects an RDFa
processor when processing

I'll probably have to be the liaison with HTML WG since I'm editing the
proposal with Julian and Tantek. I'll try to remember to cc this group
on discussions related to the @profile proposal.
