How many? Until yesterday what was the state of interoperability? Basic 
tests with Linked Data URIs failed by most, including yours.

Who are the Microdata people?
Who are the RDFa people?

Make up your mind. Do you want "simply simple" or "deceptively simple" . 
At least we agree on the fact that AWWW is "deceptively simple".

Again, this is about a spec. It isn't about teaching engineering with a

mangle the issues at hand here.

Are you working on a spec?
