I believe we should not mix up a discussion about a data model with the 
current set of syntaxes. So I am sceptical if something gets designed in 
a certain way because, for example, Microdata makes it inconvenient 
otherwise. I believe the same mistakes were made in the early days of 
RDF where it was leaning way too much towards XML. Those decisions have 
repercussions until today and are very expensive to fix - e.g. the issue 
with untyped versus typed string literals as syntactic sugar so that 
RDF/XML files become easier to edit, but messing up the data model along 
the way.
