It's in the HTML 3.2 spec.

As does the XHTML 2.0 draft:

Whatsmore, RDFa <http://www.w3.org/TR/rdfa-syntax/> allows you to use  
terms from various non-W3C vocabularies such as Dublin Core (which  
has dc:creator and dc:contributor) and FOAF (which has foaf:made and  
foaf:maker). If you treat a website as being a "project", then the  
Description of a Project (DOAP) vocabulary might be handy too, as it  
has doap:developer, doap:maintainer, doap:documenter,  
doap:translator, doap:tester and doap:helper.

At http://buzzword.org.uk/cognition/ I use RDFa to indicate that the  
dc:creator, doap:maintainer, doap:developer, foaf:maker and  
doap:documenter of the project is me; that the dc:creator, author and  
foaf:maker of the page itself is me; and that I foaf:made and made  
both the project and the page. I also use the hCard microformat in  
conjunction with <address> to indicate that I am the contact person  
for the page.
