I'll be happy to assist anybody who gets landed with this lovely task 
in writing the report. In short, I know the issue rather well, having 
discussed with Hixie, as a member of the RDFa WG, and as somebody 
who's keen to see the progression of metadata in html.

For all my analysis I don't know which is the best solution to the
problems (including solutions which haven't been turned in to change 
proposals), but I do understand the issue, the various approaches that 
could be taken, and the positives/negatives of each. Thus I'd be more 
than happy to assist in documenting them properly and in full so that 
the TAG and whoever else is interested can see the full picture, come 
to their own conclusions, and possibly give guidance.

Best,

Nathan
