And others (including me ;-) have pointed out the need for the SW to rethink its current approach (in 2008/9):

And a call for a simpler RDF (by Sandro Hawke):

And comments from JeniT about being "too insular and may be deaf to wider developer concerns":

Please note, I fully support the SW, and want to see it succeed beyond all our expectations.
I am hoping that schema.org.gate will drive a new change...

Cheers...
