Yes, definitely.

Whilst I've not agreed with all of the points being made, it has
certainly become clear in this discussion that this whole area needs a
great deal more precision in any spec.

That's not just in HTML5+RDFa, but also in any future version of RDFa.

In fact, I'm even wondering whether the TF might want to consider an
errata on this.
