Surely any change that allowed the above would also change the meaning
of:

	<cite typeof="bibo:Book"
	  property="dc:title">Murder at End House</cite>

Changing something simple and so well-established as that seems like a
non-starter to me.

I really don't see the fascination with aping microdata. Microdata
already exists. We don't need to invent an exact clone of it. Microdata
can't do all this in one element:

	<a about="/#i" typeof="foaf:Person"
	   rel="foaf:homepage" rev="foaf:primaryTopic" href="/"
	   property="foaf:name">Toby Inkster</a>
