[goodrelations] GoodRelations in RDFa: HTML or XHTML?

I've started to play around with the GoodRelations vocab recently, after
trying to add RDFa content to an existing HTML page I discovered that the
RDFa was only defined for XHTML.

Now, we know there HTML parsers are quite tolerant and always try to make
the best out of broken or not 100% valid markup.

My question is: Having a legacy HTML4 page, do I NEED to transform it into a
valid XHTML page to be able to add GR markup as RDFa to it? Or just change
the doctype and leave it up to the crawlers?

I went through some of the sources (Google etc.) but none of them explicitly
stated the importance of a valid XHTML markup. Does anybody have any
experience wrt this matter?
