That's just an artefact of us being banned from shipping RDFa by default 
because the validator rejected HTML+RDFa. If it were up to me, we'd 
always ship microformats, and RDFa, and microdata.

I think the validator accepts RDFa now, right? If so, I don't see the 
point in having a way to disable it. ReSpec has the metadata, it should 
be produced for all sorts of consumers without getting into politics.
