Agreed.

It would be great if Google and other schema.org consumers would use
itemid. Currently, it seems url is a required property when getting Google
Rich Snippets. However, when you are looking at an event detail page, the
URL won't usually be part of the markup, which means you have to place an
invisible metadata element which contains the url property. It would be
much more convenient for tools like Drupal's microdata module if Google
would also accept itemid.
