In large organizations, there are on one side teams in charge of defining the GUI, creating the HTML pages, etc, and on the other side other teams in charge of the data, API, etc. Typically the former use the API provided by the latter:  "separation of concerns", and of skills.
RDFa requires from people in charge of web pages some knowledge and understanding that are somehow related to the world of data - which is not their world. While people in charge of data are in their domain when they produce RDF/XML or turtle.
