So how about we make these 3 the only contenders, and see what
negative "blockers" we would have if any, before doing a formal vote?

Here are mine:

PIF - reminds me of that Windows thing for running DOS programs. (not blocker!)

PIL - not just a language!

PAST - Good, except the backronym - SchemaTa? "Ta" is something we
casually say for "Thanks" here in UK. Also, too many possible types of
schematas involved, RDFS, OWL, XSD? The model? SQL? I can picture "Are
you using the PAST schema?" confusions.
