My answer is the same: there is nothing to wait for.  The [RDF] spec has been
written, discussed, and recommended.  People are implementing it now as we
speak.  If you insert [RDF] in the syntax as described by [M&S], then [RDF]
software will be able to use it.  Please do not become confused by the current
discussions, they will have little or no impact on what has already been agreed
upon.  Of course I speak only for myself.

And, please, by all means let me personally know when and where you have
written your XHTML pages so that I may tell [MyMemory] to go read them to
increase its education.
