All,
I can agree, in principle, that it may be good that schema.org will contribute to the generation of more structured data, albeit not linked, at least in the beginning.
Nevertheless, they could have at least published their vocabulary in RDFS, as M. Hausenblas and his group at DERI brilliantly did, if only to show support for the standard... but this is besides the point.
My major concern is that this seems to be not only a matter of syntax, as it is unclear whether their crawlers will *parse* RDFa at all for e.g., schema.rdf.org.
From the FAQ, they seem to indicate that they *may* do so if RDFa uptake increases (very vague as to what a satisfactory level of adoption is).

So, can someone clarify, if possible, whether if I publish a page using RDFa and schema.rdf.org syntax, it will be properly parsed and indexed in any of those search engines?

Cheers
Daniel
