My tone probably reflects that I am a little bit tired of Ian repeatedly
bringing up the same subjective issue after evidence has been presented to
contradict his POV. That said, I don't think I'm being dismissive.

I've presented evidence that tool builders like Google, Yahoo, and others are
recommending RDFa, including full prefix notation, to publishers. Since we're
arguing about what these publishers will find "too confusing for the Web," we
have to look at their actual behavior. The facts point to prefixes being from
from "too confusing."

(Might prefixes require a little bit of reading up on? Sure. But this bug is
about prefixes being "too confusing for the Web." And that's false.)

On a separate note, I'm very happy to see that we're starting to discuss
consensus building.
