I stopped reading your email at this point.

I believe that have been attempts at consensus and that you and 
everybody else in the working group has every opportunity to influence 
this.  As evidence, I will cite the following four emails:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Jul/0885.html
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Jul/0921.html
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Jul/0922.html
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Jul/0924.html

I will further state that the *ONLY* reason that the RDFa draft isn't 
going to be an option on Monday's poll is the following email:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Jul/0938.html

I suggest you take the time to read the emails I cited and to talk with 
Manu.
