Then I apologize - that escalation of tensions wasn't my intention, nor
am I frustrated. Quite the contrary - speaking with Ian and Henri two
weeks ago as well as meeting and discussing RDFa with Dan Connolly,
Mike(tm) Smith, and Doug Schepers helped me better understand what
WHATWG and HTML5 were asking for regarding the case for RDFa in web
languages.

I believe that there is a way forward and that further documentation
will get us there.
