I never said the discussions "trashed" all of our hard work. I said that
some of the discussions "ignore" (some) of the hard work performed by
this community as well as the RDFa community.

Right - which both this community and the RDFa community are opposed to:

1. We do not want semantics to be placed in separate files.
2. We do not want vocabularies to be re-defined from site to site.
3. We want semantic markup to be easy to author for regular people - CSS
   is /not/ easy to author.

That's what I was attempting to point out with my statement. Apologies
if I was not clear :)
