How would such a problem manifest itself?  Firefox 3 doesn't know about
the microdata concept or any microdata vocabularies, and as such won't
be interpreting any microdata regardless of what it does with <meta>.

A parser that does care about microdata (for example, a search engine
crawler) and presents that in some way to a user doesn't require that
user's browser to know about the microdata.
