I'd have never thought that I find myself saying this, but: I agree with
Hixie. I can only speak for RDFa, but it is of course precisely this: to
allow the development and the inclusion of independently/distributed
developed vocabularies.

I must wonder how one can think this is not the case. Maybe I've missed
something, but, what are in your opinion, Julian, "extension mechanisms that
allow adding independently developed vocabularies to HTML" - can you give
examples, please?

Cheers,
      Michael
