Yes, it was a Googly ancestor to schema.org.

I prefer softer language than 'obsolete' when it comes to RDF
vocabularies. People published using it in good faith, it doesn't seem
fair to repay their trust and investment by declaring their marked up
pages 'obsolete' only a few short years later. Maybe 'archaic' works
better (at least in English...).

But yes, I will look into getting data-vocabulary.org updated to
encourage migration to schema.org. There are lots of reasons to
migrate now.

cheers,

Dan

ps. yes, we'll get to rdfa examples for schema.org too
