(No cookie for you. For nobody, even.) 
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=216788 is for example a bug 
to clean up the RDF api. As you see in the heated part of the discussion 
in bug 216797, Robert is still the module owner. As you see in the 
sudden silence, that doesn't help in all cases. Gotta nag in there again.

If you had API issues show-stopping 20% of your project, it might be 
worth to think about adding a comment. Please make constructive 
arguments, as that bug is so nicely focused right now. You may even 
start out with a posting to .rdf, which both tingley and I read, so that 
should work out nicely.
