That's my understanding, e.g. per
http://openspring.net/blog/2011/06/10/microdata-multiple-vocabularies
and http://www.jenitennison.com/blog/node/161

(these also show some hacks and partially usable approaches, e.g.
using properties called 'type' or itemref, but also why this is a hard
problem given microdata's current design)
