So, in my effort to keep us on track regarding our schedule I've been 
looking at issues we can take off of the table. Unfortunately I don't 
think this is a possibility here.
If we don't have membershipPredicate in LDP 1.0 there is no way we can add 
it later without breaking backwards compability. A server would have to 
keep using rdf:member or break clients that expect it.

Good. :-) We're going to need some willingness to compromise on all sides 
to get us moving forward.
