Yes - the process is described in
http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0001.html#approval; any Council member
can prevent advancement of a XEP indefinitely (whether this is a good
idea is up for debate, but that's the way it is).

Council members have been known to change their minds, but in this
case I think a significant change in scope/purpsoe of a Draft XEP
immediately before advancement to Final might be a bit extreme. This
doesn't, however, prevent proposal of a new XEP implementing RDFa,
which would seem a sensible route to take here.
