I can almost guarantee that neither side is going to compromise their
set of beliefs. The Microformats community is too hard headed to do so,
and the RDFa community has a very long, arduous W3C process to consider
when changing anything major in the RDFa specification.

Let's give it a shot, give it a number of months, and see if either side
feels like they're compromising on anything. I believe that approach is
better than saying that it's impossible, throwing up our hands and
giving up before we've even started.
