Describe the use case you are interested in dealing with (that is, the 
_user_ problem that you need HTML to solve), and I'll be happy to take it 
into account.

The use cases that drove microdata's design are listed in the e-mails that 
are listed in this e-mail:
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009May/0207.html

If you could describe your use case in a similar manner (without 
referencing your preferred solution) that would be most helpful.
