Hi -- I'm Rob Weir up in Westford, Massachusetts.  I work for IBM. 

I must confess that I am not a semantic web theoretician.  But I was 
attracted to the item in the WG charter related to specifying RDFa for 
other host languages, beyond (X)HTML.  I'm particularly interested in the 
possibilities with respect to OpenDocument Format. (I'm co-Chair of the 
OASIS ODF Technical Committee).  As you may know, we have some initial 
RDFa support in our ODF 1.2 revision, now under public review. 

I'm eager to help two things happen:

1) Harmonization in this area, so that the next revision of ODF converges 
on RDFa 1.1, and is an exemplary implementation of an RDFa host language.

2) More generally, to promote semantic interoperability between 
office-documents and web-documents.  I think convergence on RDFa gives 
some exciting opportunities, for example with sharing annotated content 
between browsers and document editors.
