At this time, the Chairs are looking for candidate editors for
the HTML Microdata spec.

If you are interested in performing the role of editor for the HTML 
Microdata Documents specification, please privately contact the Chairs. 
The Chairs will only appoint candidates that in our judgment will handle 
these powers responsibly. The Chairs may also be contacting some people 

If no suitable candidates are found by 27 September 2013, the chairs 
intend to treat that as an indication that the work group "cannot 
productively carry the work any further" per section 7.5[1] of the W3C 
process.  The result of such a determination would be that the document 
would be published as a WG Note.
