I won't question your motives, but I will note that the issues mentioned 
in your draft in the Microdata[1] section weren't previously raised as 
an Issue[2].

I'll also ask when/where was "An additional alternative that is being 
proposed is the removal of Microdata and RDFa from the HTML5 
specification" raised?  I've seen a (preliminary, not submitted tot he 
WG) proposal from you to include RDFa alongside Microdata, but I don't 
recall a proposal to remove Microdata.

Note: I am not suggesting that your draft be revised.  If there is an 
issue and/or a proposal, I simply want to track it or them.
