Ian's comment can be summarized as "no one has successfully deployed this
technology, except for use cases about which I don't care."

So, like Shane, I call BS. An objective bug report is one where a clear
objective standard for bug-freeness is declared, and that standard is applied
fairly to all existing features. What is the standard used here? Ian's personal
opinion, however well informed it may be, is not an objective standard.

If you look at actual data, here's what you find: Yahoo has published an RDF
vocabulary for videos, which Google has chosen to pick up, prefix notation and
all, without any coordination from the RDFa Task Force:

In fact, I suspect there wasn't even any Google/Yahoo coordination on this
front.

I think even microformats have shown this level of interoperability between two
major web players, and microformats have been around years longer than RDFa.
