Fair enough. I suppose I was overlaying my own (non-standard)

The recommendation of WG to eschew embedding in XHTML and link in the RDF
instead (see Dave Becketts comments at [1], Sean Palmer's discussion of
approaches to embedding at [2]), yet the obvious benefit of being able to
embed would suggest that this is an issue that is likely to keep

I must say btw that the Reuters Health data is an excellent example of how
RDF/XML needn't be ugly.
