I wonder, if the 'itemprop-reverse' addon for Microdata gets accepted,
would this than suffice:

 <span itemprop-reverse="about" itemscope itemtype="
http://schema.org/VideoObject">
    <link itemprop="embedURL" href="
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjC_dCvVB8s">
    <meta itemprop="name" content="How to get a flat stomach? tummy tuck or
exercise?">
    ...
</span>

Because if so, than maybe we don't need to do anything at all. (thinking
out loud, again)
