We already _have_ 'itemscope' and 'itemprop' attrs anyway, so there is no
reasons why 'itempropvalue' (not 'itemvalue' as original summary proposes)
attribute could be more confusing than existing 'itemscope' and 'itemprop'
ones. On the contrary, 'itempropvalue' attr could be consistent supplement to
them.
