I confirmed that several have responded negatively.

I then said that I didn't feel comfortable giving their names. You then said
that therefore "no one who gave requirements or use cases has responded
positively to Microdata", directly contradicting my statement.

> You respond with either I'm not listening, or I'm calling you a liar.

When you directly contradict something I'm claiming about my own actions, then
those are the only two possibilities I'm aware of.

> If you're not willing to put the Microdata section to a true test

Not only am I willing to put the Microdata section to a true test, I'm doing it
this Thursday and Friday. Google is doing a multiple-person usability study to
examine three proposed variants of Microdata to see if we can improve the 
feature even further.

I've already done this.

I'm not especially interested in a back-and-forth where you say I'm
incompetent, say that what I'm claiming is false, and fail to raise any
substantive technical arguments whatsoever. I recommend that you raise this
with the chairs.
