Before trying to do this, I'm wondering if some of you are planning to  
attend TPAC (2-6 November, Santa Clara, CA, USA)

In any case and between now and then...

As I said, I told Mike Smith briefly about RDFa use in government a  
while ago. I'm copying him here to make him aware of our discussion  
today.

Mike, John and George raised some concern on the call today (which I  
share) and want to make sure the HTML5 community understands the  
increasingly stronger use case for RDFa in government. What would you  
recommend as a next step?
