Ok. Reassigning to Mike for escalation.

Manu Sporny, Julian Reschke, and Ben Adida have all said that Microdata doesn't
match their requirements, but I have my doubts that anything that wasn't RDFa
would match their requirements. I do not believe I specifically asked the other
people you listed (I don't recognise all of their names). Most of the people I
requested feedback from directly were specifically not people involved with
RDFa or Microformats previously, because I didn't want the input I received to
be biased by familiarity with previous solutions (especially since the whole
point of the effort was to address the use cases in ways that didn't end up
having the same flaws of those other efforts).

I do not feel comfortable listing the names of the people whom I consulted
personally. However, I do not feel the need to make any claims to authority to
justify the microdata proposal; I feel it is quite capable of justifying its
own existence on purely technical merits.
