Personally, I support the inclusion of Microdata in HTML5 as it is a  
fairly simple syntax/model and a DOM interface which should be familar to  
web developers while still solving real use cases. I can't see any real  
benefits from breaking it out into a separate spec, especially given that  
the actual elements and attributes would need to stay in HTML5.
