The HTML5 spec admittedly doesn't make that very easy, but there's an 
entry in the FAQ that covers the main extension points:

   http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/FAQ#HTML5_should_support_a_way_for_anyone_to_invent_new_elements.21

For example, RDF n3 could be included directly (and unambiguously) using 
the <script type="..."> extension mechanism.
