But profiles are written in RDF, and the expected behaviour of RDF
implementations is that the order the triples are expressed in a file
is not significant (and note that in my example both "agent" and
"Agent" were defined in the same profile). Asking implementations to
take notice of the order of term declarations in a profile will cause a
lot of hassle for people building RDFa parsers on top of off-the-shelf
RDF libraries.
