That's great.

But I would reiterate that I believe you should adopt RDFa in its
entirety, rather than looking for opportunities to fork the
specification, leading to the possibility of confusing people.

In other words, whilst it's of course good news that you now see the
merits of some particular feature, that should not be relevant when it
comes to the question of language integration.

Sorry to sound hard-nosed about this, but I think it would be really
counter-productive if we were to go through exactly the same loop
again next week, when some other feature doesn't seem obviously
useful.

...just take the whole shebang! :)

Not at all. ;)

Mark
