The entire point of this branch of the discussion is that
@itempropvalue allows for confusing situations that are literally
impossible to get into with <data>.  There is *no way* to encode
Philip's examples with <data>, which is a good thing.

Now, if you think one of the examples *should* be doable, please
explain *what*, precisely, it should do.  We can then tell you how it
would be encoded with <data>.  Right now, though, those examples are
all fundamentally ambiguous, because that's the point we were making.
