Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: This is intentionally trivial to implement. I'm not convinced that
there are that many use cases for which this is important. It's easy to work
around (put the logo to the side of the company name — that's what most
business cards do anyway, and it means you'll get better text selection
behaviour).

Having said that, it would be good to get feedback on this from early consumers
of microdata, such as the Google Rich Snippets team or foolip. If consumers
think the added complexity is enough, then maybe it's worth it.
