Please stop.

Operationally, there is no difference between everybody clarifying 
comments, and "ensur[ing] that only correct information is allowed to 
promulgate" and a discussion.

Unless anybody has any ADDITIONAL types of new information, repeating 
endlessly statements purporting to re-clarify or re-refute is not 
constructive.

Furthermore, this thread restarted when James Graham outlined a new 
proposal that retained a prefixes syntax, it just interpreted them 
differently, in a way that at least one consumer of RDFa appears to 
currently implement.

At this point, if people would like to see this issue reopened, show us 
some evidence.  Reanalyzing data that was readily available during the 
last year and a half isn't new evidence.  Identifying that deployed 
software has bugs is new new information.  If anybody believes that 
these deviations aren't bugs but are intentional, then show us some 
evidence of that.

Alternately, show us massive amount of content that does depend on these 
bugs.
