I know this cannot be before the end of the year, but the 'charter' of a task force is not such a rigid timing as that of a working group. The TF is under the SWIG, ie, it is perfectly o.k. to publish an IG Note for both documents (microdata->RDF and the one you produced). What it would require is to publish a working draft first to give a larger community a possibility to comment (that just means getting the two editor's draft through the publishing process, I can help in that), and then close the work by publishing an IG Note with possible comments included. I believe both can be done in January.

I think it makes sense for the HTML Data Guide to go through whatever it needs to go through to be published as a proper Note. I imagine that will be largely administrative effort, and if you're willing to put the time into making that happen during January then I'm happy to support that.

On the other hand, I think that the microdata/RDF document really needs longer term attention, particularly as, like you say, it can't become a Recommendation until microdata becomes a Recommendation, and that's not going to happen in January. So I would rather pass that on to a WG to take forward on the Recommendation track.
