FWIW, RDFa 1.0 says to use XML exclusive c14n. However, test case 0101
in the RDFa 1.0 test suite calls for xml:lang attributes to be copied
into the child elements of literal - that's a feature of xml c14n, but
as I understand it, xml ec14n explicitly says not to do this.

Personally I'd be happiest to go with using plain old ec14n. It's a
stable specification. XMLLiterals are a rare enough use case that
anyone doing particularly delicate things with them should be expected
to handle making the literal as self-contained as possible themselves
rather than relying on the parser to do so.
