Yes, so you have the following realities:

1. consumer profile support for WebID via xhtml+rdfa -- Google lets that 
happen via Blogspot
2. convenient use of WebID -- IE is the best option.

Things that haven't been explored since Microdata will not be allowed in:

1. consumer profile support for WebID via html+microdata -- many more 
will work and the WebID tent will grow as a result.

It isn't that, far from it.
HTML5 will have Microdata as the preferred option for structured data 
islands inside HTML. That's what I know will happen, even though I 
couldn't care less about any of the syntaxes as long -- as people have 
the freedom to choose how they expressed directed graphs that serve as 
entity/object descriptors.

What about experience with mankind. People don't like revolution, they 
prefer evolution.
