The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'ISSUE-76 -
Microdata - Straw Poll for Objections' (HTML Working Group) for Joe
Williams.



---------------------------------
Objections to the Change Proposal to Split Microdata
----
We have a Change Proposal to Separate Microdata from the HTML5
Specification. If you have strong objections to adopting this Change
Proposal, please state your objections below.

Keep in mind, you must actually state an objection, not merely cite
someone else. If you feel that your objection has already been adequately
addressed by someone else, then it is not necessary to repeat it.
Rationale:

Objections to the Change Proposal to Keep Microdata
----
We have a Change Proposal to Keep Microdata in the HTML5 Specification. If
you have strong objections to adopting this Change Proposal, please state
your objections below.

Keep in mind, you must actually state an objection, not merely cite
someone else. If you feel that your objection has already been adequately
addressed by someone else, then it is not necessary to repeat it.
Rationale: 
Let's have the standard just deal with recommended HTML. Already the spec
is stretched in one direction by including many obsolete or never
standardized HTML elements/constructions and then Microdata, along with
other brand spanking new stuff, stretches it in the opposite direction by
including new technology and elements (almost)never before implemented and
tested. 

> All good specs which integrate with HTML5 should, ideally, be a part of
HTML5

I think that today this statement cannot be taken as a serious goal.
Modern web multiple media can link between specs even better than we are
doing now. The fact that the spec does not now run in all major browsers
should be seen as something that needs fixing by fixing the spec rather
than given as an offhand GBW-like warning.
