I've updated the spec and generated the three new specs, and the HTML5 
spec does not reference the new documents.

(I also took out the various features of HTML5 that previously used those 
vocabularies, so e.g. HTML5 no longer supports drag-and-drop of 
microdata-annotated vCards to programs like AddressBook.app.)

The specs are now at:
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/mdvcard/
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/mdvevent/
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/mdwork/

Cheers,
