Yeah, I *did* think about this (honest :-). The docs already linked  
to my and Alistair's pages and I was trying to reuse as much as I  
could from the original mark up (which seems to me to be the key  
reason for using RDFa). For the time being I've changed this to use  
#me (which I'm not certain is appropriate for Alistair). Alternative  
suggestions welcome -- perhaps some parallel content is required here?

I've followed Ben's suggestion of datatype="".
