Status: Nothing Actionable Described

Change Description: Zero Specification Changes


While I wholeheartedly agree that there is a serious issue with the W3C
publishing two specifications that do effectively the same things for
structured data in HTML, and I agree with much of what is said in the W3C TAG
note to the HTML WG, the TAG provided no actionable information in their note
to the group. I do not have a firm grasp on what changes could be made to the
HTML5+RDFa specification to alleviate the TAG's concerns.

We are re-evaluating changes that could be made to RDFa and Microdata currently
as a result of the TAG note, and we are attempting to provide a set of options
to the RDFa/Microdata Task Force when it forms, but no further guidance has
been provided by the TAG since the note. We are waiting on them for something
more actionable to be proposed.

I have filed all of the bugs that I can think of against Microdata, some of
those were implied in the TAG note. I have asked Ian, Henri, Philip J. and a
few other WHATWG folks to do the same for RDFa in the past and we've discussed
those issues at length in the RDFa Working Group and the RDF Web Apps Working

I feel that we have done all that we can. The TAG, or the RDFa/Microdata Task
Force, will have to let us know of a further set of actionable items that will
address the issues listed in the W3C TAG note. I am resolving this bug not
because I believe that there isn't a problem, but because I am required to per
the HTML WG bug processing policy and because there is nothing else that I can
see that I can do as an editor.
