Actually, I'm also going to point out that the W3C asked for EU
funding about a year ago for something *very* similar  - and at the
time had the interest even of Google - for hosting a RDF version of
something quite similar to schema.org. But thanks to the wonderful
judgement of the reviewers of EU proposals and the Semantic Web
academic community, we weren't given funding :)

Obviously Google and friends see a good opportunity here to actually
make a place to find structured data vocabularies on the Web. While I
wish they had better support for RDFa, I can see that the whole
RDFa/microdata/microformats lack of convergence is causing a confusing
mess for ordinary webmasters.
