I'm with Stéphane on this; like the idea, but maybe the implementation
could be tweaked to maintain the examples-front-and-centre approach that
schema.org has benefited from since its inception.

The HTML for the property tables is a bit twisted: there are instances
like the following which even the most gifted HTML5 parser will have
trouble with:

<tbody class=supertype<tr>
<th class=prop-nam' scope=row>

I also noticed that no 404 is returned for invalid URLs, like
http://schema.org/ohnoesss - just a 200 and a "No comments" page.

It would be nice to continue to have some indication of the version of
schema.org that is being documented and perhaps some metadata about when
the page was last updated.

Many thanks to the team responsible for this update, this is a big step
