Alas, this specification also fails to fit within the 
charter of the HTML working group also.

While it does supply a mechanism to permit
RDFa to be mixed into HTML documents, thus actually
addressing *one* of the examples given, the charter
encourages *a* mechanism for mixing independently
developed vocabularies.

(For those who need clarification: in English, the use
of the indefinite article "a" in "a mechanism, indicates
the singular: one, not "one or more" not "several" not
"one for each".)

The HTML+RDFa doesn't address how to mix any other
independently developed vocabulary into HTML documents --
not any of the other two examples given in the charter,
(ITS and Ruby) nor any others.

Do you think it is possible to use the method proposed
here for RDF to apply to any other vocabulary?

Could the Microdata vocabulary be put into a namespace
and then used through this extensibility mechanism?
