A general comment, microdata appears to be incredibly verbose for 
authors when using multiple vocabularies to describe things, the example 
at http://dev.w3.org/html5/md/#examples is almost painful to read, let 
alone write.

Is there no way to reduce the repetition of long URIs for properties and 
types as illustrated by the Turtle equivalent in the referred to 
example? Does HTML or Microdata cater for this in any way?

Best,

Nathan
