I'd say no. XML is not part of the microdata model, and it would be very  
bad indeed if some toolchains saw this as plain text while others saw it  
as a DOM fragment.

If there are good reasons to extend the microdata model,  
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=13468 would be a starting  
point, it is currently closed as NEEDSINFO.
