I've looked over the list a couple of times and it's a good introduction
to the problem space. For those that are new to the discussion, some of
these use cases are covered in more depth on the RDFa wiki. The RDFa
consuming applications, but only for a few of the use cases. I'm
elaborating on one use case every day until all of them are done (it
should take about a month at this rate).
Ian, would it help if I continue to elaborate on the RDFa use cases on
the RDFa wiki? Or perhaps, I could merge these use cases into the RDFa
wiki and elaborate on the WHATWG micro-data use cases first? I'd like to
focus my effort on something that will benefit /both/ WHATWG and the
RDFa community. Thoughts?
