You saw http://blog.schema.org/2011/11/using-rdfa-11-lite-with-schemaorg.html ?

"""As a result of our continued discussions and collaborations with
publishers, implementers and standards-makers, we're pleased to give
advance notice of a new way of adopting schema.org's structured data
vocabulary. W3C's RDF Web Applications group are right now putting the
finishing touches to the latest version of the RDFa standard. This
work opens up new possibilities also for developers who intend to work
with schema.org data using RDF-based tools and Linked Data, and
defines a simplified publisher-friendly 'Lite' view of RDFa.

Early adopters can follow the in-progress drafts (rdfa-core,
rdfa-lite) while the W3C group work through the remaining details. We
hope that our support for 'RDFa Lite', alongside Microdata, will allow
publishers to focus more on what they want to say with their data,
rather than on the details of its specific encoding as markup. We also
want to take a moment to thank the members of the RDFa community for
taking on board our feedback; making standards is hard work, and we
believe this latest version of RDFa is a major contribution to the Web
of structured data."""
