It seems to me that this section defines how to extract vCard fields  
from an alternate serialization (HTML5 + microdata), and how to parse  
and validate  that alternate serialization, but defers to vCard for  
the details of interpreting the fields.

That seems about right to me. It's also pretty much the way the hCard  
microformat does it.
