Is it really true that we _agreed_ in the usage of @rdfa at the end? I thought we decided, after all, to drop it in favour of using @version with a possible value of RDFa 1.1.

What are then the allowed values for @rdfa? Is it '1.0' and '1.1'?

Not that I am not _against_ this, it is just that my memory says otherwise.
