The RDFa support is also constrained now, to more or less match 
microformat support.  Google created its own vocabulary, which is cool. 
People can use more than one.

The company has said that it will _gradually_ add in support for other 
vocabularies over time. It's not a use what you want annotation, at the 
moment, but I have hopes for over time.

I agree, and I believe this is happening. But I think this happening is 
where some of the contention arose.

If a person doesn't care about validation, one can use RDFa with few 
worries.
