It is pretty unsporting of you to cut off all discussion after you post your own points to the list.

I agree the conversation is going in circles... And probably could use some time off. However, requesting as admin that those who
disagree with you should quiet down--after you make your own points--comes across as a heavy-handed way to get the last word in.

I would also like to see some of the back-and-forth move to concrete proposals on the wiki.  Including your own points, Tantek.  The
most popular uFs, such as hCard and hCalendar never went through the uF process with the same documentation and rigor that new
proposals face. You yourself have acknowledged the lack of documentation before. As a result, I'd say the burden of proof exists, as
usual, for everyone making a case. And in my opinion, it is even greater for those defending the status quo, if simply because the
incumbant have the benefit of possession of the standard.
