I wasn't comparing microformats and RDFa.  I was comparing RDFa and  
vcard.  There were thousands, maybe millions, of real-world vcards to  
look at when developing the hcard microformat.  Where is the existing  
RDFa data you would like incorporated into future microformat  
development?  Can you provide some URLs where RDFa is being published  
currently?  If so, you should add them to the relevant *-examples  
pages on the wiki.  If not, RDFa is not yet a real-world publishing  
concern, making it beyond the scope of microformats.  See:


Specifically: "adapted to current behaviors."  As far as I can tell,  
RDFa is not a current behavior so what you're suggesting is that  
microformats should be adapted to future behaviors.
