Not sure. This requirement originally came form Daniel O'Connor in a blog
...where he said:
Reasons for RDFa in HTML:
* I want to provide a machine readable interpretation of my data
* I do not want to write XSLT, or server side code to transform my data
if I don't have to
My interpretation is that it means that he would like to not have to use
XSLT to do anything with the data, whether extracting it or analysing it
