Hi LĂ©onie,

This doesn't make sense to me. When we moved Microdata into its own spec
because people objected to it being in HTML 5, we also removed Microdata
from the examples in the HTML spec (e.g.
<https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=18726>). Also, in
general, including features defined in extensions in examples in the
core spec strikes me as bad layering.
