Sam,

I'd like to mention that "HTML Microdata" is *not* a simple extract of 
existing sections, but re-adds the predefined vocabularies part, which 
was removed from HTML5 in December (see 
<http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/73>).

I already have objected to re-publish these sections as part of the 
Microdata spec, see 
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Feb/0042.html>. In 
particular, I'd like to see a statement from the editor about whether 
this is intentional, or just an oversight (potentially caused by the way 
the specs are generated).

Best regards, Julian
