+1 for me. +1 for our company.

It would be a real shame if only one way of extracting semantics from a
web page were supported in Firefox. If Firefox is serious about the
semantic web, it would be nice to see support for all the methods of
expressing semantics on web pages.

Note the recent proposal on creating a unified representation for
semantic objects (uF, RDFa, eRDF):


This would make it much easier for Firefox to support semantics in
pages. It isn't technically difficult to support all of them, so I see
no reason not to do so.
