The TAG has a F2F meeting scheduled for next week.  Although it's late for 
adding mandatory items to the agenda, I have added the following to the 
list of unscheduled optional items [1]:

* (late addition to this agenda) The TAG has, within the last week, been 
asked to help resolve concerns with the use of CURIEs in RDFa and with the 
HTML profile attribute. See very long email thread that was instigated 
with an email message from Mark Nottingham to www-tag titled "Using XMLNS 
in link/@rel", which in turn promoted a message to the public-html list 
from Julian Reschke titled @rel syntax in RDFa (relevant to ISSUE-60 
discussion), was: Using XMLNS in link/@rel. The long thread starts with 
that; early messages in that thread were not cross-posted to www-tag, but 
later ones were (starting with this one). 

I expect there will be at least time for hallway discussion, and very 
likely for a bit of formal consideration as well.  Thank you.
