Re: CfC: Request transition of HTML Microdata to Candidate Recommendation

Hi Sam,

Like many other groups and individuals, MarkLogic shares Manu Sporny's
concerns expressed in [1]. We have followed the debate, and within our
team we have an engineer who wrote one of the first web-scale RDFa
crawlers. As a standard, RDFa is a good solution for HTML-embedded
metadata. As RDFa has already met the approval of the membership as a
W3C Recommendation, a second, overlapping, recommendation-track
document doesn't seem like a good idea.

We support the publication of Microdata as a non-normative W3C Note.
