I presume you forgot itemprop, as this empty item is not very useful. Anyway,
unless the text of the article can be marked up and its formatting retained,
this can't be used for syndication. Microdata (currently) has no relationship
to the elements it happens to be scraped from, so I don't quite understand what
the above would enable.
