Hi Michael,

Your project idea sounds interesting and the example page looks really 
good. However, I can't find any hypertext link that references your FOAF 
profile in a RDF serialization format. With RDFa the content negotiation 
step is primarily not necessary. This enables an easier deployment. No 
configuration for content negotiation is necessary. Although, it could 
still be deployed and the (X)HTML+RDFa lives side by side with the other 
RDF serialization formats. Whereby, the (X)HTML+RDFa document has the 
advantage that it is out-of-the-box usable by human and machine agents. 
It enables me to serve processable views for both humans and machines in 
one document.
I think (X)HTML+RDFa deployment is crucial for FOAF profiles and for 
Linked Data deployment in general (see for example GoodRelations).
