There are a few important differences:
* RDFa adds new attributes to XHTML -- my proposal doesn't.
* RDFa uses namespaces to potentially "import" many different
metadata schemes. Mine doesn't. The "dc:" prefix on certain
class names should not be seen as a true namespace -- just a
name prefix to avoid collisions.
* Mine leverages existing microformats, such as hcard and geo.
I'd also intended to include an example which leveraged
hcalendar to describe the history of a particular object,
but didn't have time to write it.
