That sounds interesting. I wonder whether Schema.org still focuses on 
microdata, as they describe at
http://schema.org/docs/faq.html#14

After all, it is the potential consumers of metadata that matter most 
here. On the other hand, there does not seem to be evidence about 
web-wide use of metadata in any of the competing formats, in major 
search engines. We can see that Google uses it for specialized searches, 
but it seems to extract such data from large commercial or community 
sites only, according to criteria that have not been disclosed. But 
according to Schema.org information, using microdata seems to be the 
best shot.
