The conciseness/granularity argument resonated with me - it would be
good to keep the change proposals focused on accomplishing one thing at
a time. I was attempting to short circuit the process with what I see as
inevitable... but I can see how others may not want to make those

By not automatically publishing a HTML+Microdata FPWD, we don't block
Microdata from making progress in any way, so I'm happy to revert the
Change Proposal to only address the aspect of splitting Microdata from
the HTML5 specification proper.

Even though I'm reverting it, if you or anyone else in this working
group is still not happy with the Change Proposal (for whatever reason),
feel free to modify it and submit your revision for consideration.

I'll submit the no-auto-publishing revision in the next few hours.
