In fairness to Evan, whose blog post is referenced, it was written in
September 2007, before the first public working draft of XHTML+RDFa 1.0
was published, when the only public W3C documents describing RDFa were
the XHTML 2.0 working drafts.

Evan is now lead developer of StatusNet, the software that powers
identi.ca. While the only RDFa StatusNet publishes is the
grandfathered-in rel values and a little OGP here and there, it does
publish some pretty good FOAF, SIOC and RSS in RDF/XML.
