My understanding of RDFa is that it's not possible to include in valid
XHTML 1.0 and that in any case there are problems with serving pages
with an XML mimetype rather than text/html.

Do you have any real-world examples of RDFa being published? I can see
you have created a parser, but I am not aware of many examples outside
of the W3 site.

I'm interested in RDFa but I do find the arguments in Tantek's mail
from this list quite compelling

I'd be interested to know if anything has changed in the last 3 years.
