An update to the Microdata to RDF Note [1] was just published. From the W3C announcement [2]:

[[[
The Semantic Web Interest Group has published a new version of the Group Note on Microdata to RDF. HTML microdata is an extension to HTML used to embed machine-readable data into HTML documents. Whereas the microdata specification describes a means of markup, this specification describes processing rules that may be used to extract RDF from an HTML document containing microdata. The new version adds some HTML5 specific features that were finalized recently and were missing from the previous version of the Note, simplifies the RDF output as well as the processing rules to be in line with the usage practices of microdata, and updates the references to the latest version of RDF. Learn more about the Data Activity.
]]]

Notable additions in this release:

* Substantially simplified processing chain.
* Ability to extract xsd:integer and xsd:double from HTML via the data and meter elements
* Experimental support for @itemprop-reverse attribute
