I replied to your email with what I think is a logical justification for
using plain literals. I hope that we will give some time to the topic
during our meeting tomorrow. In my limited W3C WG experience, an email
from the community is just enough to warrant discussion on the call,
even if it's just to coordinate what the WG official answer will be.

I know RDFa has not been designed behind closed doors and there's a
community, but I would like to grow this community as much as as
possible. Ian's work reflects a lot of the requirements of the community
using eRDF which is also in need of RDFa.
