RDFa Incompatibility

rdfa defines a processing model for rel values that is incompatible with both previous HTML usage of rel (e.g. HTML4), and modern microformats and HTML5 definitions and usage (document scoped).

Adding rel values as defined in microformats and Microformats in HTML5 can affect RDFa processing in unexpected ways.[1]
