The W3C Microdata document was turned from a Working Draft to a Working 
Group Note, which indeed means in practice taking it away from 
recommendations or “standards” track. But that was in October 2013, so 
the validator maintenance hasn’t been particularly fast in dropping it. 
And microdata is an integral part of “HTML Living Standard” by WHATWG as 
well as recommended by major search engines via Schema.org, so it would 
be surprising if the validator started flagging it as invalid.
