Can you clarify if you mean that the generic RDF part of the RDFa API 
should be designed first, then RDFa DOM specific functionality added as 
an extension. (all within the RDFa WG and carrying on as planned)

The RDFa API and WG should wait for another group to standardize an RDF 
API, then extend that?
