Well the most common source of confusion is people writing in to say 
that they don't understand why the validator is rejecting their 
<section> elements, or conversely why ReSpec isn't removing them. The 
same applies to all other HTML5 constructs.

Normally, removing the XHTML parts of the DOCTYPE might be enough to get 
past the validator. But how that interacts with RDFa validation, I do 
not know.

Are you using XHTML just to get RDFa? What is preventing you from just 
using RDFa in HTML? The specs eventually always get served as text/html
