The search engine coalition that pushed out  a set of micro-format 
vocabulary weighed toward using urls
for "itemtype" in microformat:

http://www.schema.org/Event

Given that indexing was put forward as the case for the <intent> tag, 
how would that look in current microdata semantics?

This is on webintents.org:
<intent
   action="http://webintents.org/share"
   type="image/*"
   href="share.html"
  />

Would it look something like this, in microdata:
<meta itemscope
  itemtype="http://webintents.org/share"
  itemprop="image/*"
  content="target.html"
/>
