Reading http://schema.org/docs/gs.html (IMHO) I don't see the salesmans version,
a trainers view of the ideas behind schema.org.

Has anyone started to think of how a web monkey or home user might be persuaded
to adopt microdata for their own usage?  E.g. taking the user perspective?
Dan and others may well find their way round schema.org, but it isn't so easy
to get started when a new user comes across it?

The other side of this is the breadth of options? How might the
increasingly large
number of terms be 'filtered' for use by  the man in the street to
optimise his/her
chances of a search engine result?

I think this aspect could and should be given consideration as the size of
the main term set increases.

Just a thought. Is there work being done in this area?
