Hixie,

I want to make sure that what we write about the use of multiple itemtypes in microdata is accurate.

Could you please clarify what is meant by "same vocabulary" in microdata terms? Could I define a microdata vocabulary that included types that were also used in other vocabularies, for example "http://schema.org/Person" and "http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Person" or do all types within a particular microdata vocabulary have to share a common base URI?

It would also be really helpful to document the use cases that led you to add support for multiple item types from the same vocabulary to microdata, especially if we can use them as examples. Do you have a pointer?

Thanks,

Jeni
