Can you maybe elaborate on the "bad things" you mention here?  There  
should be nothing about microformats that prevented RDFa from using  
the class attribute, as there's no monopoly on the class attribute.   
Were those implementations that didn't involve any namespaces nor  
profiles?  I don't see how there could be any conflict with namespaces  
(since microformats have no namespaces), and a lack of namespaces  
seems antithetical to my understanding of RDF.
