It's not pretending that Microdata is part of HTML5. It's intended instead to
just be useful for people who do want to use Microdata in HTML documents, and
who would benefit from having relevant reference information at point-of-use.

There has been no scope extension. I never intended the scope of the document
to be restricted in such a way that I could not include relevant information
from other HTML WG deliverables or even from third-party sources. If I had, I
never would have included, for example, the fragments from the WebKit default
UA stylesheet.
