Thanks for reaching out on this issue.  

At this point The IPTC is recommending that those implementing the rNews data model in HTML5 Microdata use the equivalent classes a properties defined by schema.org.  I would personally like to see the addition of multiple types in Microdata so long as the rules for resolving collisions in multiple inheritance are clearly defined.  Although I don't think the IPTC will recommend that implementors of rNews use this feature, the added flexibility seems desirable.

All the best,
