You make a bold assumption for the Web populace, as a whole. Basically, 
you are assuming that users, developers, designers etc.. will never 
understand the semantics expressed in an RDF triple. You are also 
assuming that all data consumers will be resigned to their own 
heuristics for basic structured data processing and relations semantics 

As indicated by my +1 to Holger's comments, why don't you simply confine 
this heuristic to Microdata since this is the syntax with the 
limitation? Good documentation and examples will enable those that have 
to work with Microdata (no matter what) go with this suggestion, if it 
suits their needs.
