Sigh...

Understandably so. We did take pains to make people aware that we are 
still invested in RDFa and XHTML, though the FAQ, but there has still 
been a lot of confusion and uncertainty.  We expect that the XHTML2 WG 
will help tie up those loose ends over the course of their remaining 
chartered period.

I agree that the RDFa story needs to be clarified as soon as is possible.
