Assuming that this is only for microdata, what reasons do we have to think that
<data itemprop=country machineval=se>Sweden</data> is less confusing than <span
itemprop=country itemval=se>Sweden</span>? It seems like the former would be
harder to massage into existing markup if there's already a suitable element
wrapping "Sweden", which will often be the case. It's also a lot less obvious
how it affects microdata just from looking at it.

AFAICT, none of the variants in http://blog.whatwg.org/usability-testing-html5
tried to use attributes for overriding the content, I take it you're
extrapolating from something else?

(It would be quite nice to not use <meta> for microdata. The initial reaction
is bound to be "WTF?" and you can't style the visible content based on it since
it's a void element.)
