Reading over this again I thought it looked as if I was defending Sam. I was
actually looking to this group (which is the most qualified one you can get)
for acknowledgement, i.e. was I right in thinking that it's a silly poll
that doesn't give any meaningful answers.

That's what I thought Ivan, but I didn't want to jump to any conclusions by
writing a post in response to the general lack of understanding in this
area. 

Sam does think 2007 is the year for the Semantic Web however. He wrote a
decent post on Content Labels recently [1]. He's a good friend of mine so
I'll have a chat with him.

Honestly... I do not think it is serious. I mean, intellectually
serious. Putting a pair of questions like that without giving any
comments, background, etc, is meaningless. Besides: trying to consider
RDFa (which is not yet finished, unfortunately) and microformats as
being a dijoint choice is counterproductive and unnecessary.
