Now they do. It would have been great if it wasn't required to raise a 
bug to get something like this fixed. And also, if the editor would 
actually reply over here.

I did. Here. The suggestion is not to say "HTML specifications", but 
simply "specification". Microdata is *not* an "HTML specification".

so that the link can be accurate.

What I requested (again and again) is that the Status sections be made 
consistent. See:

"That being said, other wording would be ok as well, as long as it's
