If the W3C flavor of HTML5 can delegate it's pre-defined microdata  
vocabulary management to the WHATWG, this seems to be a possibility.

By which WG?

Regardless of which WG, Process-wise it seems like a bad idea to move  
normative matter into "the accountability free realm of Working Group  
Notes" (to quote Björn Höhrmann).

It would be highly unusual for a W3C spec to delegate upper layers to  
the IETF rather than delegating lower layers.
