[Bug 11752] With the itemscope - it seems unnecessary since it becomes redundant whenever there's an itemtype - so why not have itemtype="item"

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Yeah, what Tab says. I actually agree with the original commenter,
and indeed the spec originally just had item="..." and you didn't need to give
a value and all was well, but authors in the study uniformly found it confusing
and found it much simpler when we simply had them use the two attributes
separately instead.
