To clarify, what I'm doing is going through the discussions that resulted 
from the call for use cases for microdata annotations earlier this year, 
along with the comments that were posted to a variety of blog posts, 
mailing lists, and wikis, as well as reading Manu's long wiki page of use 
cases for the topic, and attempting to (a) distill from this a set of 
requirements for HTML5, (b) enumerate the various proposals that have been 
put forward to address these use cases and requirements, (c) evaluate the 
use cases and requirements, (d) evaluate the solutions in the context of 
those use cases and requirements, and (e) make an initial proposal for 
addressing these use cases and requirements (ideally selected an existing 
technology that satisfactorily addresses them), which will then be refined 
in discussion with Working Group members and other reviewers.
