Best practice for an upgraded site to define RDF mappings for RDFa output?

A site that has been upgraded from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 has not even had this code from standard.install in the Standard profile run yet. Can generic mappings like this be easily taken care of in other custom configuration of RDF or should this (plus more?) go in an update hook?

haven't seen it anywhere, but it's the kind of question that should be

in RDFa (or any other potential RDF output) any more than i want to display
the 'submitted by' in HTML.

Conference on Semantics in Health and Life Sciences report-back at Cambridge Semantic Web Meetup

Presented to us by Eric Neumann, Clinical Semantics Group

C-SHALS, this smaller conference, pre-competitive, more interesting public discussion than some other major industry events. Two day event.

Sponsored by pharmaceutical industry.

Gets very exciting, a lot of energy, semantic web but different emphasis.

Allowed vendors to do lightning talks, but not a full 20 minutes.

RDF and RDF/XML are two different things.

On the abstract level, you have RDF, a graph representation of the knowledge.

RDFa was just standardized, it's a serialization built into the HTML.

It's all the same thing on the RDF level.
