The HTML WG is doing so based on the following Working Group Decision on ISSUE-76, where the Working Group explicitly decided not to pick a winner between HTML Microdata and HTML+RDFa: <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Jan/att-0218/issue-76-decision.html>

This decision was largely based on the following Change Proposal, which argued persuasively in favor of "allowing many flowers to bloom": <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Dec/0299.html>
