Apologies for not seeing this message; I have HTMLWG email currently
filtering to auto-archive.

To the best of my knowledge, nothing has changed to address my
original complaint, so yes, my formal objection stands.

As long as the RDFa WG actually records my formal objection and
responds to it appropriately, this is fine.

(I don't hold much hope for anything good happening here, given the
existing strong resistance to any change in RDFa to make it reflect
reality and clear authoring experience, but still, one might as well
observe the formalities.)
