Hi Ralph,

alternatively by utilising RDFa [1] you could probably achieve the 
intended kind of modelling, see the following example:

<div xmlns:ex="http://example.org/" xmlns:so="http://schema.org/">
	<div about="[ex:author1]" typeof="[so:Person]">
		<h1 property="[so:name]">Isaac Asimov</h1>
	</div> <!-- person -->	
	<div about="[ex:book1]" typeof="[so:Book]">
		<div rel="[so:author]" resource="[ex:author1]"></div>
		<div property="[so:name]">The Dark Ages</div>
	</div> <!-- book -->
	<div about="[ex:book2]" typeof="[so:Book]">
		<div rel="[so:author]" resource="[ex:author1]"></div>
		<div property="[so:name]">The Best of Isaac Asimov</div>
	</div> <!-- book -->
</div> <!-- namespace div (optional) -->

(I added resource identifier for the person and the two books)

If you put this snippet into a webpage, you could check the extracted 
result, e.g., via check.rdfa.info, see [2]. Unfortunately, this doesn't 
seem to be Rich Snippet friendly, see [3]. Maybe, I did another mistake 
for not being Rich Snippet conform ;)

Cheers,


Bo
